New Zealand Geographic is one of a number of geographical magazines published in the English-speaking world that make little or no reference to work by academic geographers. It recently launched a New Zealand Geographic Trust to promote research into 'New Zealand's life, culture and sciences' and collaborated with four other publishers of geographical magazines to raise awareness of climate change: the work of academic geographers is again ignored. This exclusion of academic and school geography from such enterprises raises important issues regarding the discipline's public profile in New Zealand and suggests the need for greater public engagement activity by the country's geographers.
