Department of Conservation

We are the government agency charged with conserving New Zealand’s natural and historic heritage.

Our purpose is Papatūānuku Thrives.

Our work is guided by Te Kaupapa a Te Papa Atawhai, which outlines our purpose, roles, behaviours, principles and outcomes. See Our purpose and outcomes.

Our outcomes are:

  • Te ora o Papatūānuku | Healthy nature
  • Te ora o te Hapori | Thriving communities
  • Te hunga Atawhai | People who care
