Tiaki Promise

Caring For Kaikōura

New Zealand is precious, and everyone who lives and travels here has a responsibility to look after it. Kaikōura's pristine alpine and marine environments are home to diverse ecosystems rich in biodiversity which are at risk if we fail to treat the area with respect.

The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to care for New Zealand, for now and for future generations. By following the Tiaki Promise, we are making a commitment to Kaikōura and New Zealand. To act as a guardian, protecting and preserving our home. Nau Mai, Haere Mai Ki Aotearoa, Welcome to New Zealand.

We ask all visitors to Kaikōura to honor this agreement by practicing the Tiaki Promise.
