About Department of Conservation (Te Papa Atawhai)

Our vision is for New Zealand to be the greatest living space on Earth (Kāore he wāhi i tua atu i a Aotearoa, hei wahi noho i te ao).

Our vision means ensuring that New Zealanders gain a wide range of benefits from healthy functioning ecosystems, recreation opportunities, and through living our history.

To do this, we organise our work around five outcomes:

  • the diversity of our natural heritage is maintained and restored
  • our history is protected and brought to life
  • more people participate in recreation
  • more people engage with conservation and value its benefits
  • conservation gains from more business partnerships.
