Looking for financial assistance with fencing, planting or pest plant and animal control, then you may like to consider applying to the Christchurch City Council Biodiversity Fund.

Christchurch City Council Biodiversity Fund

The Christchurch City Council Biodiversity Fund is designed to support and encourage initiatives that protect and enhance indigenous biodiversity on the Christchurch Plains, Port Hills and Banks Peninsula.

Projects must be on private land, and sites must meet criteria for ecological significance. The Council can provide more information on whether a site is likely to meet criteria, and may be able to provide an assessment by a professional ecologist.
