Protecting and restoring our natural biodiversity, spectacular coastal and inland landscapes is a collective, collaborative effort and part of our mission to be good ancestors here in Te Tauihu.
Often carried out by unsung volunteers, in Nelson Tasman we invite visitors to learn more about the amazing nature projects that are underway, and to create opportunities for everyone to participate in this rewarding and vital work.
By weaving in a restore and protect activity, your holiday can be more than a sightseeing tour, it can be legacy building, educational and impactful. Whatever your situation, there are activities happening across the region which are restoring and protecting our natural flora and fauna. Whether you want to plant a tree, sponsor a fence post or penguin box, engage in pest control, weed eradication or wildlife monitoring, there are options available to you.
Participating in, or supporting regenerative projects in the Nelson Tasman region will amplify your zero carbon holiday impact, turning it into a net positive for local community and the environment.
Get inspired and take action by scrolling through the profiled activities below. A more comprehensive list of environmental activities happening in Te Tauihu can be found on the Tasman Environmental Trust website. Feel free to contact a group of your choice and see how you can connect, engage and amplify your work.
