Tasman Environmental Trust

Connecting people with nature conservation in their communities

Nelson / Tasman

We offer credible expertise in the protection, maintenance and restoration of land, freshwater and estuarine natural environments.​ We are local and accessible and are widely representative, understanding a variety of viewpoints. We work collaboratively with the whole community including special interest groups, landowners and businesses in Tasman. Our role is encouragement not enforcement. We distribute funds for viable local environmental projects.

Tasman Environmental Trust was founded in 2000 by four organisations: The Department of Conservation, Federated Farmers, Queen Elizabeth II Trust and the Tasman District Council.

Our trustees have a wide and deep range of conservationist experience and are therefore able to provide information and expertise to grass-roots environmental groups. Having skills and experience in science, business, farming, health services and policy enables the trust to connect with and work alongside a variety of sectors and the individuals, groups and organisations within these.

Donating to the forum is a pleasing solution for recognising work for Resilienz Ltd. by Astrid Sayer and Kahu Sanson-Burnett, who preferred not to be paid themselves for their efforts.
