Lots of organisations are already doing their bit, but to see real change it has to start in our own backyards and connect to the bigger picture. Did you know that two thirds of our native habitat in Auckland is in our backyards?

Every one of us relies on our environment – for fresh air, clean water, relaxing, exercising and more. Right now over half of our urban streams and 75% of coastal sites are in poor health.

A poorer environment has heaps of negative impacts including human health. Auckland Council estimates the social cost of poor air quality in Auckland alone to be over $1.07billion. Around 300 premature deaths in Auckland occur each year due to air pollution.
