The Conservation Effect: Why backyard biodiversity matters
16 September 2018
Conservation Week runs from 15 – 23 September. This week, help New Zealand’s biodiversity by completing a conservation activity at home. These actions don’t just make your garden look good they also help protect our native species from predators, provide sources of food for native birds and reduce harm to wildlife and plants beyond your own backyard.
