Biodiversity Conservation

Conserving the Biodiversity in the beautiful region of Auckland and our nation Aotearoa / New Zealand is very important to us. On our Auckland Tours, we strive to contribute to not only conserving but also growing the cultural and environmental biodiversity in Auckland and Aotearoa / New Zealand.

We integrate Maori experiences into our tours where possible, which is an integral part of our company name. TIME = “To Integrate Maori Experiences”.

We are also very active in ensuring biodiversity by not only conserving our environment but by actively helping it become better, such as through programmes that assist the reintroduction of endemic bird species that have become extinct in Aotearoa / New Zealand. Through such measures we feel that we can really make a difference and make the environment a better place to live in, while being not only accepting but rather assisting other cultures that inhabit our area and nation.

Of the many Indigenous peoples around the world that have been taught to re-use the materials and food given to them, Maori have been exceptionally resourceful in achieving this.

Maori have been able to build up a great knowledge of their environments, such as complex navigation via the stars over long distances, sustainable fishing practices and allowing the native bush and plants to regenerate while only taking as much as they need and not more. Maori have built up in-depth knowledge of their eco-systems and have conserved biodiversity through their clever use of resources.

Maori in New Zealand, like many other indigenous cultures around the world, have for many generations been dependent on their local forests, pastures and the sea for the provision of resources such as food (such as fish and meat), shelter (such as large fern leaves and trees for their Marae (meeting places) and other uses (such as Harakeke/ Flax for clothes, fishing lines, nets and baskets. They have therefore maintained biodiversity.

Our company aims to support any initiatives that teach both New Zealanders and visitors alike that conservation and forward-thinking initiatives will benefit both our economy and our biodiversity. Examples are bush regeneration initiatives on the Maori meeting places (Marae) we work closely with locally, as well as assisting with their programmes to work with at-risk youth to reintegrate them to benefit both Maori and our society in general.

We are very aware of the fact that in the long-term, the success of our various Auckland Tours and Auckland Maori Culture Experiences depends very much on the attractiveness of the environment – both natural and social – and the biological diversity that we live in. In short, if people want to visit our region then we all benefit if this is managed responsibly.

Part of what we strive for is to restore biodiversity in our region where this has been decimated in the past. An example is the reintroduction of the Kaka (Maori for Parrot) into the Waitakere Ranges in West Auckland and also the support of our indigenous Maori Culture, which is thankfully making a strong comeback. Our company aims to strongly assist such developments where we can to make Aotearoa / New Zealand an even more attractive place to visit.
