Overview Te Tirohanga Whānui

The BioHeritage National Science Challenge has been funded for 10 years, but reversing the decline of our biological heritage will take much, much longer than this.

This ‘horizon’ work will complement the shorter-term research being conducted within our main programmes by re-imagining how we, as a nation, could take a better-informed approach than what is currently provided by various national strategies or operational efforts in ‘isolation’.

Their activities also provide a way of integrating work streams on biodiversity and biosecurity, and will support early career and Māori thinkers.
