Biodiversity and Biosecurity

5 months ago

In this portfolio collaboration is key. We work closely with our partners and communities to protect and restore Canterbury’s indigenous biodiversity.

This includes a focus of increased action on the ground and working with landowners to provide information and incentives to invest in maintaining biodiversity.

Protecting braided rivers and wetlands

The task ahead is huge, and it cannot be done unless we work together. Under this portfolio we are developing a new approach to braided river management and continuing to support private landowners to recognise wetlands as farm assets.

Managing weeds and pests

Weeds and pests, such as wilding pines and wallabies, continue to be a challenge and control work
to protect native species and production values, from new and existing pests, is a large part of the expenditure.
