See nature through new eyes this Conservation Week, 15-23 August 2020. Since the COVID-19 lockdown, many of us slowed down and looked at our lives and the world differently. So, we're inviting you to enjoy a fresh prospective on our natural spaces and unique wildlife, and boost your wellbeing by immersing yourself in nature.

Join us during Conservation Week 2020 for a day restoring the remaining dunelands on Wellington's rugged South Coast (exact location to be confirmed closer to the date). Learn how native sand binding plants can prevent erosion and create habitat for unique species of wildlife such as the korora/little blue penguin. We will be having a visit by two very special guests this day - Richard from the Department of Conservation and his penguin tracking dog!

We provide: tools, gloves, training and transport to/from site if needed.

You need to wear/bring: long sleeves and pants, a hat, a jacket, reusable water bottle, sturdy footwear essential.
