Landcare Research is a New Zealand Crown research institute driving innovation in the management of terrestrial biodiversity and land resources. Our goal is to both protect and enhance the land environment and grow New Zealand's prosperity.
Our 350 staff collaborate extensively with counterparts at other leading research organisations in New Zealand and around the world. We partner with key stakeholders, including government, industry, and Māori (the indigenous people of New Zealand) to provide advice and solutions.
We have four main areas of focus: terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity; the sustainable use of land resources; greenhouse gases from the land environment; and business growth within environmental limits.
