We now have 1 full time and two part time staff and a network of of remarkable volunteers that all love our beautiful landscape & wildlife. We work hard to protect and look after these ecosystems in our local communities.
Together we want to see ecosystems restored and communities all across New Zealand actively caring for the earth.
To protect and restore the environment through community-based conservation projects, research, and education.
We’re committed to the 5 commitments central to all A Rocha projects around the world and these are our specific goals:
- Hands-on conservation: protecting and restoring natural ecosystems and the people, plants and animals that depend on them.
- Community-building: encouraging a community response to local environmental needs and a culture of genuine partnership, care and support.
- Environmental education: inspiring and empowering people with conservation knowledge and skills, and encouraging the church to adopt creation care as an integral part of the Christian life.
- Research and monitoring: studying natural ecosystems to foster knowledge and love of them, to enable informed conservation action.
