The Australian New Zealand Association of Animal Rights says there are more than 500 species of animals in the country’s wild.
The Association says that is up from around 100 in 2000.
The most common animals are the domestic sheep and goats, the Australian white ibis and the kangaroo, which can weigh up to 200 kilograms.
In some parts of New Zealand, you’ll find native bushland and native forest.
The group says that in some parts the animals are not wild but are domesticated.
Some animals are used as meat and are sold in the market.
Animals and wild plants are also being destroyed for food and for human consumption, the association says.
“We know that when we eat animals, we are giving them a gift.
They are giving us a way of life and a place to live,” Animal Rights Association spokesperson, Kaitlyn Campbell said.
“They are a symbol of a healthy, natural environment and their meat and wool is the foundation of our traditional diets.”
She said the animals were also the source of traditional medicines, as well as traditional medicine.
“People who are not vegetarian or vegan, they can still have a significant impact on our environment and we need to do everything we can to help them and their wellbeing.”
Ms Campbell said some people are becoming concerned about the animals’ impact on the environment.
“There are some animals that are in conflict with farmers who are looking for animals to graze their sheep on their farm, or they are trying to eat some of the birds that are coming in to feed the sheep, or the rabbits that are nesting on their land,” she said.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Primary Industries, Mark O’Connell, said there were many species of wild animals in New Zealand.
“We do not want to see any animals being brought into New Zealand for commercial use.
There are many native animals that exist in New Zeland that we would not want introduced into New Zland, and we do not sell any animals to people for slaughter,” he said.
Mr O’Connor said he did not know of any cases where an animal had been sold to slaughter in New Zealands history.
The Ministry of Primary Industry and Fisheries said it was working with local authorities to prevent animals being used for food.
Ms O’Neill said the government was committed to ensuring that wild animals were not exploited for commercial gain.
She also said the Ministry of Agriculture was working on the New Zealand Meat Inspection Act, which she said would require a licence to import, transport and sell animals for slaughter.
