Goal 5 - Land primarily used for production and for settlement also supports thriving indigenous biodiversity.

A great example of the whole community working to enhance indigenous biodiversity on the Peninsula is our Port Saddle Restoration Project. This is a collaboration between the Trust, Lyttelton Port Company, Enviro Schools, local primary school children, and the community at large. Support from the Rata Foundation helps us facilitate projects like this one that benefit the whole community.

What does success look like? 

Land managers are aware of and protect ecosystems and biodiversity as a matter of course. Periodic mapping and imaging demonstrates that there is an increase in indigenous biodiversity cover across the Peninsula. The whole community is actively involved in projects to enhance biodiversity, such as Port Hills residents planting and managing appropriate vegetation to develop an ecological corridor (or bridge) from the Peninsula to Christchurch city.
