We all want a thriving Southland - and this depends on a thriving environment
Southland is facing environmental challenges.
- Many waterways have poor ecosystem health. Find out more here.
- Our unique indigenous flora and fauna are under threat. Find out more about biodiversity and biosecurity here.
- Climate change is causing more frequent and severe weather events and rising sea levels. Find out more about our actions to tackle climate change and what you can do here.
Addressing these challenges is a responsibility we all share.
Many people are already working to improve freshwater, increase climate resilience and protect biodiversity. It’s important we continue to build on this. On this page, you can find links to everything we’re doing to enhance Murihiku Southland’s environment.
As we work together to make changes, we will keep seeking community feedback.
There’s support available for anyone feeling overwhelmed or stressed by the challenges and changes ahead. Contact the Southland Rural Support Trust – www.rural-support.org.nz.
