Want to know more about the NZDA?

We promote safe, responsible use of firearms, and a respect for native flora and fauna. We believe in the principle of public ownership of wildlife generally, and seek to prevent the creation of privileged hunting / exclusive access to the publicly owned fish and wildlife assets that belong to all New Zealanders.
