Department of Conservation

The Department of Conservation's education activities aim to develop knowledge, values and skills in young New Zealanders so that they may be confident, connected and actively engaged learners who are able to sustain and care for their environment, now and into the future.

A key goal is to assist young people to connect with nature and restore New Zealand’s natural and historic heritage because they understand and value its contribution to their quality of life.

Education objective
