Landcare Research

Landcare Research is excited about its involvement in this noteworthy project and expedition. We're delighted that we can provide in-kind support for our staff's preparation time (not inconsiderable for an expedition of this magnitude) and contribute funds to cover their share of the expedition's expenses.

Landcare Research is New Zealand’s leading provider of solutions and advice for sustainable development and the management of land-based natural resources.

Fulfilling our vision (innovative science for a sustainable future) is important because New Zealand’s social, cultural and economic well-being is inextricably linked to the state of our environment. This ‘natural capital’ comprises the ecosystems that underpin our way of life, many of our cultural aspirations, and the key industries and services upon which our economy is based.
