Westpac Water Care Project

A strategic partnership to support catchment groups with their environmental goals.

Westpac Water Care Project and NZ Landcare Trust (NZLT) are supporting catchment groups across Aotearoa, New Zealand, to build awareness and develop the necessary skills among land managers to achieve their locally-developed environmental, community and economic goals. We aim to make catalytic and practical investments in catchment communities to build local resilience to a changing world, reduce the environmental risks many land managers face, and restore social license.

Basic Criteria

• Small to medium emerging catchment group (not necessarily a legal entity)
• Not already resourced for the support being requested
• Strong local landowner/land manager engagement
• Can demonstrate an intention to engage with tangata whenua
• Potential opportunities for good ecological outcomes
•May need volunteers to achieve outcomes
