WWF New Zealand - http://www.wwf.org.nz - is the local office of the WWF International Network, the world’s largest and most experienced independent conservation organisation. It has close to five million supporters and a global network active in more than 100 countries.
WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future where people live in harmony with nature by:
• conserving the world’s biological diversity
• ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable
• promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption
WWF-New Zealand’s conservation programmes achieve this by encouraging all New Zealanders to be environmentally-responsible, and by advocating for all our native species to be protected so they thrive once more through their natural range.
We use the best available science and partnering with government, businesses and people to encourage everyone to be environmentally responsible. WWF-New Zealand campaigns for healthy oceans now and in the future, inspires action on climate change, protects New Zealand’s endangered Hector’s dolphins and other sea life, and partners with local volunteer conservation groups to restore native habitats across the country.
