The Wellington Branch's geographic area aligns roughly with that of Wellington City Council, from the south coast to the Porirua Harbour. We have a membership base of over 1,700 and growing!

Our Branch has a history of achieving important outcomes for the city's environment and our members have been instrumental in their success. Our diverse projects illustrate the breadth of member involvement in Wellington’s natural capital.

We engage with our City and Regional Councils to improve our open spaces; to keep our harbour and coastline safe for penguins and other wildlife; to improve the condition of our streams and the survival of our forest remnants.

We have occasional guided walks and a well-supported regional tramping group.

Tūao | Volunteer

  • We are always looking for ways to involve people in the care and preservation of our natural world. Wellington Branch has a wide range of projects you can get involved in, with options to suit your availability, ability and experience.

Volunteering is a great way to connect with nature and your community, and it’s rewarding to know that you are building a brighter future for Aotearoa.

As a volunteer, you meet people of all ages, skills and interests and develop new friendships. Below are a number of ways in which you can be part of the action.
