∙ To make available the information necessary to ensure the welfare of alpacas in New Zealand.

∙ To promote the breed both nationally and internationally.

∙ To communicate the benefits of alpacas, their value as a farmed animal and provider of high-quality fleece.

∙ To communicate their other benefits, such as land use change, conservation, and environmental protection.
