As Kiwis we know how lucky we are to live in the most pristine and untouched environment in the world. Spectacular glaciers, picturesque fiords, rugged mountains, lush forests, a volcanic plateau and miles of sandy coastline. This is our New Zealand and together we share a strong sense of guardianship to protect it now and for the future.
Now more than ever each of us needs to do our bit as our precious native environment is under pressure on all fronts. The diversity and conservation status of our native species is declining with nearly a third of our remaining native bird species currently classified as threatened, water quality in our rivers has worsened, pests remain a serious threat to our indigenous animals, plants & habitats, and we humans have wiped out two thirds of our native forests and bush. If ever there was a time to act, it’s now.
Introducing even betterer – bringing you and and our local conservation heroes together to protect our environment.
All over New Zealand local conservation heroes are volunteering their precious time and resources to a diverse range of conservation projects, all of which play a vital part in restoring New Zealand’s native flora and fauna. Guys like Anthony Behrens who’s committed to saving the endangered Whio (Blue Duck) population in Manawatu and Mike Camm from Tutukaka Landcare Coalition who’s determined to bring the Kokako back to Northland. These “grass roots” environmental crusaders have passion and commitment in spades, but to have real impact they need your support.
even betterer is a simple and interactive web-based crowdfunding platform for volunteer groups who want to raise funds for conservation projects, and it’s a place where you can go to donate directly to our local conservation heroes. Think of it as a fresh new way of doing your bit for the future of New Zealand’s environment.
- 95% of all the funds raised go directly to our local conservation heroes.
- The choice is yours. Not only do you get to choose which volunteer group you donate to, you chose the exact project you want to fund so that you know exactly where your money is going. Plus all of the even betterer conservation groups have been reviewed and screened by the even betterer team so you can trust where you money is going.
- Its more than just money, it’s a relationship. Your volunteer group will be in regular contact with updates on their progress and latest news etc. With even betterer you get to see the difference you’re making first hand.
- even betterer is backed by some of our most influential Kiwis – Malcolm Rands (ecoman and founder of ecostore) and KEA World Class New Zealand group (members include Helen Clark, Sir Stephen Tindall, Karen Walker, Sir Ralph Norris).
It’s never been easier to do your bit to protect the future of New Zealand, so check out even betterer and give your support to our local conservation hero’s. Together we really can make a difference!
