Environmental matters

Environmental primary

Kaikōura is home to a community that cares for the environment and works hard to protect and enhance it. Since the 1990s Council has incorporated these values through various programmers and initiatives including Earthcheck accreditation and Zero Waste.

Because Kaikōura  is small council with small staff numbers and budgets, Council works hard to promote an environmental focus through in-kind support, sharing knowledge and expertise and participation in key multi-agency initiatives such as the Kaikōura  Water Zone committee.

A report to the February Council meeting highlighted some of the environmental work going on around Kaikōura. The report included updates on projects such as recycling and waste minimisation, our EarthCheck program, Significant Natural Areas Project, the Kererū to Kaikōura Native Planting Project, Responsible Cat ownership, 'Helping on Holiday' Conservation Volunteer Project and many more.
