Environment & Sustainability

Discover Waitomo is privileged to be both the commercial operator and kaitiaki of the Waitomo Glowworm Cave, the Ruakuri Cave and the Aranui Cave.

These caves are a precious taonga to the Ruapuha Uekaha Hapū and Aotearoa New Zealand. With great privilege comes great responsibility. 
It is this sense of responsibility to our people and place that underpins our values – Kaitiakitanga, Manaakitanga, Whanaungatanga – and inspires our concept of sustainability. As a part Tourism Holdings Ltd (thl), we are also committed to the award winning thl sustainability strategy. This strategy describes 5 key focus areas; Climate Change, Responsible Travel, Nurturing our Crew, Embracing our Communities and Shareholder Satisfaction.
