Conservation Week is run by DOC each year to encourage people to get involved in nature and help to take care of it.


Each year DOC works with community groups across Aotearoa to spread the conservation message. It’s a nationwide celebration of kiwis pitching in to help our native plants and animals. We invite you to join us by:

  • Going to a local Conservation Week event
  • Doing an activity off your own bat
  • Donating to an existing conservation programme

Thanks and hope to see you out there!
