Get involved with community conservation groups working around the country.

There are hundreds of conservation groups working with DOC, or working independently around the country – from restoring forests, coasts and wildlife to managing huts, tracks and historic places. 

Many of these groups have large-scale restoration and biodiversity recovery as their aims, while others focus on a particular endangered species.

Get involved with an existing group or run your own project.

You can also volunteer for a DOC project, or assist DOC partnerships on endangered species management and other conservation projects.

Nature Space is also great way to find groups, individuals and landowners undertaking ecological restoration in New Zealand.
