Communication & Engagement


This work will mean very little if we can’t share what is happening. New Zealand will benefit from aspects of Poutiri Ao ō Tāne.

There is an emphasis on sharing the stories, the science, the new techniques, and the celebrations of key milestones.

On this website you can find out about all the key stakeholders, their part in Poutiri Ao ō Tāne, along with what their own organisations are all about. We also have a Facebook page for ongoing updates about the project, and a Youtube channel with video coverage. Also, the ‘News’ section on this website has more in-depth blogs about the major milestones and progress. Our online presence is linked and promoted via the Department of Conservation’s award-winning website which currently attracts 2.7 million unique users per annum. It is also linked to Nature Space, a website dedicated to community restoration programmes.

Spreading our messages

In addition to mainstream media, the science research and operational teams will disseminate practical information to the broader national and international conservation community. This will include channels such as online conservation forums, conferences, best practice guidelines and peer-reviewed academic journals.

At a local level participation from the community will include activities such as guided walks, bird feeding and monitoring, and open days. We encourage links and partnerships between the project and associated communities in other parts of the world, and the local New Zealand community engaged in conservation and restoration projects.
