The BioHeritage Challenge needs a wide range of people to achieve its ambitious goals, and here you'll find different ways you can get involved.

Stewardship of our unique biological heritage is every New Zealander's responsibility. It's a complex problem, because it's under threat from invasive organisms and from new pressures emerging in a rapidly changing global environment.

There is no single solution, meaning we need science and research to discover, develop and deploy new knowledge in innovative ways. This is the essence of the BioHeritage National Science Challenge.

We need:

  • diverse individuals and institutions
  • with different roles and skills
  • working at different stages along a value chain from science to better ecosystem outcomes.
