In Aotearoa New Zealand, we seek to inspire, educate and enable communities to care for our unique environment. A Rocha Aotearoa NZ is actively engaged in practical community conservation work through our network of local group projects.

We are committed to the five commitments (5Cs) central to all A Rocha projects around the world.

  • Christian – Underlying all we do is our biblical faith in the living God, who made the world, loves it and entrusts it to the care of human society.
  • Conservation – We carry out research for the conservation and restoration of the natural world and run environmental education programmes for people of all ages.
  • Community – Through our commitment to God, each other and the wider creation, we aim to develop good relationships both within the A Rocha family and in our local communities.
  • Cross-cultural – We draw on the insights and skills of people from diverse cultures, both locally and around the world.
  • Cooperation – We work in partnership with a wide variety of organizations and individuals who share our concerns for a sustainable world.
