About Landcare Research
Landcare Research is New Zealand’s leading provider of solutions and advice for sustainable development and the management of land-based natural resources.
Our vision is: Innovative science for a sustainable future.
Fulfilling our vision 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.
Our research focuses on three key outcomes:
* Protection and restoration of biodiversity
* Sustainable land environments
* Sustainable business & living
Underpinned by three cross-cutting themes:
* Climate change mitigation & adaptation
* Sustainable Maori futures
* Weeds, pests and diseases
