Environment Southland monitors and gathers information about the quality and quantity of the region's air, water and land resources to enable these to be managed for future generations. We carry out long-term monitoring across the region, as well as short-term research and investigations where information gaps or potential problems are identified.
We've completed a whole lot of research and investigations since 2014. The reports on these are available on this Story Map. As well as technical reports, you'll find posters and videos - and we're adding more all the time. Find out more about them and browse our database here: Environment Southland Science Reports
This area highlights some of our important science issues and takes you to a summary and the main technical report. Click here to view these summaries.
Southland Water Story
It's a big story, and we've started to tell it. This is a place where you can learn more about how our waterways are doing and what's happening to them. We’ll also be sharing and profiling some of the great things that are going on across the region in an effort to help maintain and improve them. We hope you’ll come on this journey with us.
