How Excio is Celebrating 50 Years of NZ Conservation Week

Together with the Department of Conservation we are celebrating 50 years of Conservation Week in New Zealand which is such a significant milestone.

We have so many wonderful reserves and parks in New Zealand, making it one of the best places on our planet where people can get as close to nature and wildlife as they want whilst also playing a part in taking care of it for generations to come.

Boozer Hut is one of several historic huts that used to shelter miners working the sheelite mines of the Richardson Mountains, near Glenorchy in Otago. The miners were known for their hard work and hard drinking. Mining ended some decades ago, and since then several of the huts have been restored. The surrounding mountains are now protected as part of the Whakaari Conservation Area.
