Plant Biosecurity & Biodiversity

The Enhancing Biodiversity portfolio focuses on improving the measurement, management and protection of New Zealand’s terrestrial biodiversity where it is most threatened and irreplaceable and where ecosystem services sustain our economic potential. Our research and partnerships seek to enhance the representation, functioning and utilisation of indigenous biodiversity through evidence-based information and tools to enable management, regulatory and policy agencies, iwi and community groups to help reverse the current decline in biodiversity.
