A bit about us
At Goodnature our vision is a natural environment in which species survive, thrive, and flourish, free from the threat and destruction of introduced pests. We are committed to providing pragmatic solutions to one of the world’s most serious environmental problems - biodiversity decline.

We’re also moving towards BCorp certification, and take pride in the fact that we always prioritise people and the planet alongside our growth ambitions. We’ve grown by 3X in the past few years and over 80% of our sales now sit outside New Zealand, but the most exciting chapters are still to come.

Goodnature is growing and evolving;  as such we’ve moved from being a founder-led business to a business under the guidance of a professional, passionate CEO and backed by a strong executive leadership team.

With exciting ‘hardware meets tech solutions’, an incredible innovation pipeline, a clear strategy, and tailwinds in global conservation, we’re only just getting started… What are you waiting for? Let’s Rewild the World.
