Get involved with community conservation groups working with DOC 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. You can help through active participation or perhaps providing some administrative or financial help.

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.
