Te Ipukarea Society is an environmental organisation in the Cook Islands formed to help look after our Ipukarea, ‘our heritage’. Our philosophy is that we do not own our land and marine resources but borrow them from our future generations, and need to leave them in good condition.
We are a membership-based organisation made up of individuals who believe in the need to maintain a healthy and beautiful environment. We are members of IUCN and Birdlife International.

Our Environment Through The Eyes Of Our Youth Today
Of the various platforms that can be used to get our message across, it is the power of still environmental photos that has always caught my eye. What I like most about photography is that from just a simple click, an image can create an important message that reaches a wide audience. It crosses the language and cultural divide. How these photos are perceived by the individual then has the power to create lasting environmental change at both local or global scales.
