Today, I’m inviting you somewhere special. Not many people know about this place yet – you’re one of the first. The place is called Wildside and it’s a new social media community run by the Department of Conservation (DOC) on Facebook and Twitter.
With the tagline Aotearoa New Zealand. Live it. Love it. Look after it. Together. Wildside promises inspiring stories, images, videos and conversations about:
Living on the wildside – tramping, camping, biking, hunting…
Loving the wildside – our places, plants, animals, people…
Looking after the wildside – protecting, restoring… doing our bit.
And, importantly, Wildside is about doing it together.
We didn’t want another place on the web about ‘DOC the government department’. Wildside is for, and about, everyone.
Here at DOC we’re working towards making New Zealand the greatest living space on Earth – but this vision isn’t just ours, and we can’t do it alone. We want you to join the journey – and Wildside will be a great place to start. Will you join us?
