Environment

Kaikōura is home to many special native species and landscapes.

This unique biodiversity helps keep our air clear, our water clean, and provide food, education, medicine and recreation for our local residents and visitors.

Council is proud to be working with our community to protect our wildlife and land and make sure our district’s environment has a sustainable future.
