Arrange a permit to fly a drone over conservation land or near marine mammals.
Why do you need a permit?

All drone use on conservation land requires a permit, for both recreational and commercial purposes.

A permit ensures we:

  • protect the local wildlife
  • respect Māori cultural values by involving hapū and iwi
  • let others enjoy the outdoors too
  • consider people’s privacy
  • prevent accidents and interference by following Civil Aviation Authority rules
  • follow relevant policies and plans.
