The dates for Conservation Week are 10–18 September this year.


This is a great opportunity for you to get involved in conservation and connecting with nature. DOC and our partners will host a range of events, competitions and activities around the country in beautiful New Zealand landscapes, making it easy for you to head along and discover new places.

Nature is everywhere. It has the power to not only invigorate, refresh, and amaze you, but it can also be beneficial to your body and mind.
