Each year thousands of people from the community – be they businesses, iwi, motivated individuals, trusts, landowners, schools – help in conservation efforts around New Zealand.
As part of Conservation Week 2012, Otago decided to recognise many of those individuals by recording their stories on film.
This 8.5 minute video highlights the work of groups as diverse as the Yellow Eyed Penguin Trust, Orokonui Ecosanctuary, Air New Zealand, Ngai Tahu, Mitre 10 Mega, and many more.
We hope that many more people become involved, so that DOC can achieve its vision of doubling conservation efforts in our beautiful country in the next 20 years.
