Wellington Round the Bays 2021

21 February 2021

He rau ringa e oti ai – By many hands the task is completed.

Our mission is to inspire change by connecting people with nature. Established in 2006 in New Zealand and drawing on over 30 years’ experience in Australia, our expertise in managing volunteer involvement in conservation projects is widely recognised. With offices in Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Punakaiki we work in partnership with community and with all levels of government, non-governmental organisations and many of New Zealand’s top businesses to tackle a diverse range of conservation projects. We bring people together to connect with each other and to care for the natural places we all cherish.

The money raised through Wellington Round the Bays 2021 will go towards protecting our Tuna kawharuwharu/longfin eel, kākā and Kororā/little blue penguin.

About our mahi

Wild Aotearoa focuses on practical, on-the-ground actions to make a real difference to vulnerable species in New Zealand, whether they be mammals, birds, invertebrates, reptiles or fish. These actions concentrate primarily on habitat protection and restoration through planting, predator control, monitoring and controlling invasive weeds for these species to thrive. Because New Zealand has the highest proportion of threatened species in the world, our goal is to provide practical, on-the-ground actions to make a real difference to vulnerable species in New Zealand.
