Nature needs our help to cope with climate disruption. By cutting our emissions and planting trees, we will help limit global warming. We can also help nature become more resilient by reducing other threats such as the impact of pests and inappropriate development.
Cut your emissions
Use energy-efficient appliances and avoid fossil fuels for energy.
Choose more fuel-efficient or low-carbon vehicles and drive efficiently.
Use public transport where you can.
Minimise your air travel.
Give nature a helping hand
Join a local Forest & Bird branch and get involved in local conservation projects.
Nature needs practical help to cope with climate disruption. Planting trees and getting rid of pests and diseases will help to make nature more resilient.
Plant more trees
Planting trees on your land takes carbon dioxide out of the air.
If you're a landowner, you can take part in the Permanent Forest Sinks Initiative and get paid to restore native forests on your land.
As well as storing carbon, this will help protect downstream farms and towns from flooding and allow wildlife to thrive.
Join our climate roadshow
We are launching a national climate roadshow that will tour the country later this year.
It's a chance for people to find out more about the impacts of climate change on nature in their region and how conservation programmes can be adapted to help mitigate these.
Help us be a voice for nature. Help us make it loud and clear that protecting the environment is central to New Zealand’s defence against climate disruption
