The Mackenzie Basin Agency Alignment Programme is an alliance between the five agencies with statutory responsibilities in the Mackenzie Basin – the Mackenzie District Council, Waitaki District Council, Environment Canterbury, Land Information New Zealand, and the Department of Conservation.
Individually and collectively, the five agencies are working with the Mackenzie community to protect the iconic Mackenzie landscape, its water quality and its precious indigenous flora and fauna. View a map of the area our agency alliance covers.
How do we strike the right balance, keep what we love about living and visiting here, and create a more sustainable future for Te Manahuna/the Mackenzie Basin?
In the lead up to winter, Mackenzie Basin locals banded together to stop the spread of wilding conifers across the iconic landscape.
