We are the Waitaki (North Otago area) branch of Forest and Bird.

Since 1923 Forest & Bird has played a crucial role in preserving New Zealand’s environment and native species. We've helped establish conservation protection for a third of our country’s land mass, put an end to logging our publicly-owned native forests and helped prevent species such as the kakapo and kokako becoming extinct.

We have grown to number 80,000 members and supporters who make it possible for our staff to advocate for better legislation and policy to protect nature. Members also engage with local and regional councils to speak for nature in local and regional planning forums and educate their communities about conservation and environmental issues.
