Make a difference

Help protect your local waterways at our next conservation event.

Plastic, debris and rubbish are spilling into our beaches and river systems. It’s threatening our wildlife and damaging our precious ecosystems.

But the good folks at Sustainable Coastlines are changing that. With regular clean-ups and tree-planting days – and passionate volunteers like you – we can make a real difference to our coastlines.

If you live in Wellington, it’s your turn to get outside and get hands on.
