Changes to our biodiversity funding

Since the adoption of our Long-Term Plan for 2021-2031, we are working on some changes to our funding pathways for high value biodiversity projects. Contact us for more information.

We have over a million dollars available annually for protection and restoration of biodiversity on private and public land.

Immediate Steps flagship projects

We support three biodiversity flagship projects – Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere enhancement project; enhancement of the upper catchments of the Rakaia and Rangitata rivers; and the Wainono Lagoon project
