About Us

Established in 1996, NZ Landcare Trust is an independent charitable organisation. It is one of the only national, non-government organisations working with the land user community to encourage and support sustainable land and water management.

The Trust brings together and unifies diverse interest groups. Our Board comprises seven trustees organisations, including representatives from Federated Farmers of New Zealand; Federated Mountain Clubs; Federation of Māori Authorities; Fish and Game New Zealand; Ecologic Foundation, Rural Women New Zealand; Farm Forestry Association; and Royal Forest and Bird Society of New Zealand.
