Conservation Week: 8 - 15 September


Conservation Week is run by the Department of Conservation each year to raise awareness of the benefits of conservation, and to encourage people to get involved. This year’s theme is ‘Celebrate Conservation Week! What’s your whānau doing?’ The aim of the special week is to get families and friends together to experience and care for the natural environment.

For schools, Conservation Week provides an opportunity to explore the living world strand of the science curriculum, the concepts of place and environment in the social sciences curriculum, the future focus issue of sustainability, and values such as community and participation, and care for the environment.

Here is a collection of ideas and resources to support your participation in Conservation Week.
