Founded in 2006, Conservation Volunteers New Zealand offers opportunities for volunteers to join projects throughout New Zealand. We have offices located in Auckland and Wellington in the North Island and Christchurch and Punakaiki in the South Island.
Our programs offer volunteers the chance to learn and apply new skills - while having a great time on social, fun activities which make a real difference to the environment.
We provide help to land managers who need assistance to complete conservation projects. We assist National Parks, private conservation reserves, individual landholders, local councils etc.
We have several native tree planting programmes:
Punakaiki Coastal Restoration Project on the west coast of the South island.
Atiu Creek Regional Park on the Kaipara Harbour.
A Forest at the Heart of Wellington in the central Wellington Town Belt on Mt Victoria.
Trees That Count has been supporting this project for several years now. This ambitious project involves volunteers from schools, communities and corporations in the planting of 65,000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt on Mount Victoria. The aim of this project is to create a greener healthier environment within the city and to show-case to the nation how humans and nature can thrive in the same place.
