2020 has changed us and placed a greater emphasis on our connection to nature as a way to boost our wellbeing.
During the COVID-19 lockdown, many of us found solace in the moments we were able to spend in nature (close to home, of course; both virtually and in our own backyards). We slowed down. We spent more time with our whānau.
This year, the theme for Conservation Week is Nature Through New Eyes.
Immerse yourself in nature and look closer with a fresh perspective on Aotearoa’s natural spaces and unique wildlife. Papatūānuku’s wellbeing is our wellbeing.
Engage online, at events or with activities, or by exploring your own backyard and embracing what’s always been there; look, listen, breathe and feel. Here are a few ideas for how you can celebrate Conservation Week this year.
