Nicola Toki is DOC's Threatened Species Ambassador.


With an extensive career in conservation, Nic’s mission is to advocate for our threatened native plants and animals.

Day to day, she’s also on the senior leadership team for the Biodiversity Group in DOC.

Nic believes that, while New Zealanders’ define themselves by a love of the natural world, there can be a disconnect between what we think and what is really happening out there.

She always has the mantra of her hero, David Attenborough, in the back of her mind: “No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no-one will care about what they have never experienced.”
