Habitat Heroes

Habitat Heroes is a kaupapa that encourages communities to support and protect our natural environments. By being active kaitiaki we can all connect to the biodiversity, spirituality, history, culture and overall health and wellbeing effects that a healthy environment brings.

The Department of Conservation’s ‘Habitat Heroes’ encourages young people to explore a local natural environment and think about how they can make a difference. The competition runs between 18 April and 29 September 2017.

Do you know an early childhood centre, school or community group that’s doing great restoration work or wants to get started and doesn’t know how? The Habitat Heroes resources and 2017 competition is a great place for them to start!
