We partner with the New Zealand Department of Conservation (DOC) because they help protect the places that we love to explore. Conservation is a key part of these efforts and by engaging our customers and staff we can help preserve the outdoors. Here are some of the projects we're currently involved in.
Kea Conservation Trust
The Arthur’s Pass Kea Project is using citizen science to gather more information about where and how Keas are sighted. Kea populations are dwindling due to predators, and sadly, all too often due to human influences.
The project will also educate locals and visitors on how best to minimise harm to Kea so they have the best chance of surviving long into the future. We have provided funding to get this project off the ground and encourage anyone lucky enough to be in the Southern Alps of New Zealand to get involved and report Kea sightings.
