A beautiful island country with vast stretches of jagged mountains, rolling pasture land, steep fiords, pristine trout-filled lakes, raging rivers, scenic beaches, and active volcanic zones – New Zealand is nothing short of a paradise on Earth! Consisting of two main islands – named as the North Island and South Island and many smaller ones in the South Pacific Ocean, this archipelago lies 1,600km (1,000 mi) south-east of Australia. Often called as ‘The Land of Kiwis’ – derived from the kiwi, a native flightless bird, which is a national symbol of New Zealand.

No matter whether you are a high school/ college student or a gap year traveler looking for a meaningful work experience abroad, the Conservation Program would be perfect for all who are keen on doing something for the environment and eager to learn more about the flora and fauna of the country.

Conservation Volunteering Program – In the last few decades, due to the considerable change in weather and an overall rise in the temperature – the natural beauty of the country has been hugely affected. It’s through these programs that you’ll get the opportunity to see the real wild nature of New Zealand’s environment, and by helping out with track cutting, pest control, and animal monitoring, you’ll make a lasting contribution to conserving these places and the creatures that live there for years to come.

Being a volunteer for the Conservation Program, you’ll get to share an innate love for the endangered species living in these parts of the world, and for Mother Nature in general. Depending on your program location, you can decide what you wish to do during the weekends. Some of the things that we’ll absolutely recommend are – exploring the Fiordland National Park, Tongariro National Park, Waitomo Caves, Abel Tasman National Park, Lake Wanaka etc. Also, don’t miss you spending some chilling time on the beaches.
