DOC Approved label
Label displayed by businesses approved to operate in public conservation areas
The DOC Approved label symbolises the significant contribution tourism and recreation businesses make to conservation in New Zealand.
DOC values these businesses and wants visitors to know that a percentage of their ticket price goes directly to DOC to support conservation.
These businesses have passed environmental and safety standards set by DOC, and have been approved to operate in public conservation areas.
You'll only see the DOC Approved label used by businesses with a current legal agreement with DOC.
Look out for them, and when you use their services be proud that you are making a contribution to conservation in New Zealand.
All concessionaires may use the DOC Approved logo on their own websites. Please email DOCApproved@doc.govt.nz if you do not have the electronic version for this purpose.
