Our native flora and fauna are a taonga that helps to define us as a nation.  At Horizons, we work in partnership with our communities to protect and enhance our patch of native New Zealand. We are lucky enough to have our own Regional Park in Tōtara Reserve and many other excellent examples of living heritage, like Te Āpiti - Manawatū Gorge and Manawatū River.

Horizons offers a number of community grants which the public can apply for each year, for projects that enhance and protect our environment. Find out more about Grants and Sponsorship. 

We work to protect our biodiversity through three programmes:

  • Priority Habitats Programme
  • Tōtara Reserve Regional Park
  • Biodiversity Partnerships Programme
