The largest region in the country, Canterbury forms a significant part of New Zealand's unique network of biodiversity.

Working with landowners and the community, our biodiversity programme focuses on projects across the region that protect, maintain and enhance our indigenous biodiversity.

Indigenous biodiversity continues to be affected by humans and be in a state of decline across Aotearoa New Zealand.

The focus of our regional biodiversity programme is to protect and maintain what remains. Our guiding principles for how we work are

  • action for priority ecosystems;
  • smart information and management;
  • working with others;
  • and leading by example/our land, our people.

These principles guide/inform how we initiate, develop, implement, and monitor biodiversity projects in Canterbury.
