Otago is the focus of much of Forest & Bird’s campaign to protect the high country by establishing a network of high country conservation and recreation parks.

We want to preserve our beautiful native species such as kea and the iconic landscapes of our mountains and alpine tussocklands for the enjoyment of future generations.

The Dunedin Branch produces a handy “Best Restaurant Guide” to help you enjoy the region’s restaurants while making sure the fish you are eating is sustainably caught.

You can also stay at Forest & Bird’s Tautuku Lodge in the Catlins which is set within walking distance to beaches, wetlands and a range of forest tracks.
