The Anzac spirit

Elizabeth Marenzi —  25/04/2013

Australia and New Zealand made their mark on the world, far from our respective shores, close to a century ago. Showing great courage, endurance, initiative and discipline, we pulled together.

“Anzac stood, and still stands, for reckless valour in a good cause, for enterprise, resourcefulness, fidelity, comradeship, and endurance that will never own defeat.” Charles Bean, official war historian.

After watching this video, showing everyday yet extraordinary New Zealanders working with DOC to help make our country the greatest living space on Earth, I know that the Anzac spirit lives on. We’re pulling together. And conservation is benefiting.

What are you doing to help make New Zealand the greatest living space on Earth?
