Conservation Week is an opportunity for you to take part and show your support for conservation.


We'd love you to get involved with Conservation Week. You could promote Conservation Week through your network, do a conservation activity as a group, or run your own Conservation Week event or competition.

Spread the word

Help spread the word. Use our web banners and posters or create your own from one of our templates which will be available here soon.

Connect to the campaign via social media

Social media plays an important part in Conservation Week.

Our Conservation blog runs a series of posts during the week, and we showcase what others are doing and sharing online.

You can support Conservation on your own channels.

  • Use hashtag #ConservationWeek.
  • Tag us using @docgovtnz in your content.
  • Encourage your followers to get on board and show New Zealand some love!
