Air New Zealand safety videos

A Journey to Safety

The video follows a young girl who transports lost takahē, Mr T, to his new home with help from us and the Department of Conservation (DOC).

While it's lighthearted on the surface, it conveys a really important message - our native birds need our help. Our safety videos have collectively generated more than 180 million views over the past decade, so what better medium to shine a spotlight on New Zealand's biodiversity crisis.

It builds on our eight-year partnership with DOC, where we've been working together since 2012 to protect and enhance New Zealand's natural environment. Through this partnership we've helped transport 3,200 threatened species to safe havens, funded pest traps across 38,000 hectares of the country, and supported marine science and research within New Zealand's marine reserves.

New Zealand's landscapes are also a feature in the video, with the Murchison Mountains in Fiordland, Tiritiri Matangi in the Hauraki Gulf and Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari in Waikato all making an appearance.
