– The Tiaki Promise, Tourism Industry Aotearoa, New Zealand

Here at Go Orange we are committed to protecting, preserving and caring for the land we so luckily to call home. We embrace Tourism New Zealand’s Tiaki Promise to care for people and place by proactively educating visitors about our commitment to looking after our stunning natural environment. Here are the three main commitments, New Zealand and Go Orange would like you to take.

  • Care for the land, seas and nature, treading lightly and leaving no trace
  • Travel safe showing care and consideration for all
  • Respect culture, travel with an open heart and mind

During training sessions, DOC inspired our guides with genuine local knowledge about Maori legends, national park conservation efforts, and marine research locations and impacts, as well as predator control efforts throughout Fiordland and the promise of sustainability. These elements combined have been used as the foundation of knowledge the crew needed to confidently share the Tiaki Promise with our visitors.

The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to care for New Zealand, for now and future generations. By following the Tiaki Promise with us you are making the commitment to New Zealand to act as a guardian, protecting and preserving our home.
