Connect with nature and make a real difference.
We believe the positive steps we all take to protect and restore nature can make a big difference. Wild Heart Project is all about bringing passionate people together to grow the native forests and habitat that will let our native wildlife thrive. Conservation is a core part of the kiwi spirit, and something we are all part of.
