Meet your central Environment Canterbury team
We deliver work through an on-the-ground team made up of Environment Canterbury staff. Our staff provide localised assistance and advice regarding biodiversity, land management, consents and compliance.
Zone delivery - land management, biodiversity and special projects
Land management and biodiversity advisors can support you with advice or assistance when it comes to farming, land use, biodiversity projects, funding and connecting with others in Environment Canterbury. These teams are generally referred to as zone delivery teams.
See our video about how these teams work and how we manage water in Canterbury.
