How you can help save kauri

The Department of Conservation have recently created a video to show how you can help prevent the spread of kauri dieback disease at their new cleaning stations. 

As well as providing education and awareness tools to communities, partners involved in the Kauri Dieback Programme have installed cleaning stations and signage across kaurilands. These are designed to ensure that visitors to kauri forests follow the appropriate hygiene steps to help prevent the spread of dieback disease.

You should always:

Infected trees may not show it – never assume anywhere is free of kauri dieback. If you’re in native bush and you’re in the upper North Island, it’s likely you’ll be near kauri.

Spread the word within your networks on how to stop kauri dieback.

Kauri are one of Aotearoa's unique taonga. But kauri dieback is threatening kauri with extinction. There is no cure for kauri dieback, and it can be spread by just a pinhead of soil. But kauri will be saved – by people like you.
