DOC cooperates with others from around the world to protect and restore natural and cultural heritage globally, in the Pacific and in Aotearoa.

Our goal is to create a global culture where conservation of natural and cultural heritage is valued and considered vital to economic, cultural and social success.

As the Government’s primary conservation advisor, DOC works alongside other agencies to ensure conservation is a central consideration when representing New Zealand’s interests internationally.
