Ki-we can change the world together.
We lose an area of forest the size of a football pitch every two seconds, which means less space for animals to thrive. It’s predicted there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050. If we fail to act on climate change, 1 in 6 species could go extinct.
Together we can turn things around.
As New Zealanders we’re inspired by nature, so we want to look after it. We’ve worked hard to become 100% recyclable and are helping save our national icon, the kiwi, from extinction (you might know him better as the quirky little bird on our logo). Working with the charity Kiwis for kiwi, we’ve helped improve the status of the kiwi from ‘endangered’ to ‘vulnerable’, but we still have a long way to go. Together we’re determined to see the kiwi population flourish, once again, across New Zealand.
Habitat loss doesn’t just affect the kiwi, it’s one of the biggest threats to animals around the world. That’s why we’ve partnered with WWF to protect natural habitats. Together we’re ensuring species are protected from extinction and that nature is restored.
Where are we protecting?
From the sunny savannahs of East Africa to the rapid river basins of China, we’re working together with WWF to help protect some of the most biodiverse habitats around the world. That includes a WWF project that’s protecting a whopping 500,000 acres in the Amazon Rainforest. Not only is the Amazon home to 10% of all the species on Earth, the trees there also help clean the atmosphere by storing an impressive 140 billion tons of carbon emissions. Basically, no Amazonian trees = no fresh breeze!
The world’s quirky creatures need our help!
From the lush landscapes of New Zealand to the exotic Amazon rainforest, the world is full of weird and wonderful creatures that often get overlooked. But just like the more popular endangered animals, habitat loss is one of the biggest threats to their existence.

This quirky little bird is like no other!
Yangtze Finless Porpoise, China
Lovingly called "river pig" by locals
Despite their huge size, this cousin of the crocodile is far from a man-eater.
They’re the largest cats in Latin America and the top predator in the Amazon.
Giant Anteater, Amazon
Surprisingly these greedy eaters don’t have teeth.
Short Ear Dog, Amazon
These dogs are pretty cheeky and rely on another quirky creature for their burrows.
