Conservation Kids NZ
Kids + Conservation = OUR FUTURE
To inspire the young minds of NZ to take action for conservation!
We love NZ. From the native bush to the marine mammals, we are passionate about protecting and preserving this beautiful backyard.
It's this passion for conservation that has seen CKNZ grow from its humble beginnings
to become a popular and well known club and charitable trust.
By utilising resources and opportunities available to us in the community we are able to provide safe, fun and educational learning experiences that focus on conservation and the environment.
Our events unite the young minds of NZ and encourage them to become more involved in conservation on a local, national and international level.
We strongly believe that it's this environmental education of future generations that will ensure a much brighter future for not only the Marlborough Sounds but NZ as a whole.
The Pelorus Conservation Kids originally started as the
Rai Valley Conservation Kids back in 2018 by Antonia O'Donnell.
Antonia started the conservation club because been a rural town their was not much in the way of clubs or groups for the kids to join.
She wanted to bring something to the community to help encourage the kids of the Rai Valley/Pelorus area to learn about their environment around them and also to help motivate our kids to get out and about in nature.
The Pelorus Conservation kids runs most of their events base around their local environment, encouraging their kids to know their own back yard.
