The Ministry for the Environment contracted the Cawthron Institute to survey catchment and community environment groups about how they are organised, what they are doing, what obstacles they face and their priorities for additional support. A link to an online survey was distributed by sector groups, NZ Landcare Trust, Predator Free NZ Trust, and regional councils. The survey was open from 1 September to 26 October 2021 and generated 240 useable responses.
