Environment and conservation

Fully one-third of New Zealand’s land mass is dedicated to national parks.

New Zealand has successfully blended intensive agriculture and a booming mass-tourism industry with world leading outcomes in species and national park management.

Similarly, New Zealand’s $1b commercial fishing industry has been ranked number one for sustainability. This is linked to the successful operation of 35 marine reserves spanning vast swaths of New Zealand oceans. We can connect partner governments with New Zealand’s world leading expertise in environmental management across a range of areas including pest control services; tailored restoration programmes; species protection; water and air quality; water allocation management,;resource management; national parks management and eco-tourism.
