Conservation Volunteers New Zealand builds on the experience of Conservation Volunteers Australia which has been operating as a leader in this area since 1982.

Founded in 2006, Conservation Volunteers New Zealand is a not-for-profit, incorporated, independent trust and is registered as a charitable entity under the Charities Act 2005.

Conservation Volunteers works with local communities, the business sector and government agencies to bring together additional volunteers to undertake significant conservation projects.

Conservation Volunteers has offices throughout both the North and South Islands – specifically in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Punakaiki.
