Leave No Trace New Zealand seeks to educate and challenge the New Zealand public and visitors on how and why to minimise their environmental impacts while enjoying natural and cultural heritage areas. We have no political affliations or agendas.

The Leave No Trace programme's effectiveness lies in the universality of its message. We will take a proven and focused programme to a wide audience, running outreach for environmental awareness and stewardship.

Interested parties are welcome to join our mission whether they be outdoor enthusiasts, land managers, other non-profit organisations or commercial partners. Consider becoming a member or supporter today.
