Kids! Become A Kiwi Guardian And Earn Cool Rewards

New Zealand is full of opportunities to explore the great outdoors. With the Toyota Kiwi Guardians activity programme, the kids will be begging to go on their next adventure!

Getting kids outside away from their devices and finding activities they will enjoy can be a bit of a challenge.

Since 2016, The Department of Conservation and Toyota New Zealand’s Kiwi Guardians programme has given families the resources they need to create easy adventures for kids to get some fresh air and exercise, learn about nature and earn cool rewards, creating future guardians of New Zealand. And Kiwi Guardians is free!

There are even Kiwi Guardians conservation activities you can complete in your own backyard or neighbourhood. Read on to find out how your family can take part in the Kiwi Guardians adventures.

Go on an adventure!

There are over 100 Kiwi Guardians sites around the country to explore, from public spaces like Auckland Botanic Gardens to attractions like Zealandia, as well as beaches, reserves, bush walks and more.

Choose a site from the Kiwi Guardians website and download the adventure map before you head out for fun things to do and find as you explore.

Don’t forget to take some fun snaps along the way #KiwiGuardians!
