TIME Unlimited Tours support any biodiversity initiatives that teach both New Zealanders and visitors alike that we are at the forefront of developing and implementing worthwhile conservation and forward-thinking programmes. Such programmes are to benefit both our economy and our biodiversity.
• Working toward sustainable practices in all aspects of our business
• Educating our visitors on cultural heritage and protocols
• Biodiversity conservation to ensure our fantastic environment and cultures are protected and enhanced
Examples of programmes we support are bush regeneration initiatives on the Maori meeting places (Marae) we work closely with, as well as working with at-risk youth to reintegrate them to benefit Maori and our society in general. For every person we bring to the local Marae, we pay the Marae a generous “koha” (donation) to support the many worthwhile language and cultural programmes they implement.
In the long-term, the success of our Auckland Tours and Auckland Maori Tours depends very much on the attractiveness of the environment – both natural and social/cultural – that we live in. We intend to lead the way to actively promote programmes that ensure our region’s biodiversity is not just maintained but further enhanced.
