The DOC website has a range of resources on getting involved in DOC projects.

Community conservation groups

There are hundreds of conservation groups working with DOC, or working  independently around the country – from restoring forests, coasts and wildlife  to managing huts, tracks and historic places.

Many of these groups have large-scale restoration and biodiversity recovery  as their aims, while others focus on a particular endangered species. You  can help through active participation or perhaps providing some  administrative or financial help.
