Landcare Research’s new website goes live (and we are invited to go looking for bugs)

Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research alerted us today to its new website.

The CRI said the site represents a significant milestone for it and supports its science ambitions for New Zealand at every stage of their lifecycle.

Whether it’s our land, our environment, our biodiversity, or our biosecurity, the website demonstrates our strong relationship with our partners, and our commitment to provide exceptional results to our stakeholders.

Features include:

  • An enhanced search function – find what you are looking for in seconds.
  • Pages dedicated to the CRI’s collections. “Our national collections are an internationally significant research resource and now these are easier to access.”
  • Dedicated project pages that highlight the work Landcare Ressearch is doing in some of its key initiatives, such as Beyond Myrtle Rust, Reducing nitrogen losses from farms, Eradicating the last 5%, and Winning against wildings
  • A feedback tab – to give immediate feedback, whether bouquet or brickbat, via a tab on the website page.

Landcare Research’s most popular tool – What is this bug? – has had a refresh.

“Whether you love them or loathe them, you’ll be able to easily identify what you’re looking at, no matter now many legs or eyes it has.”

Chief executive Richard Gordon says the CRI works  for New Zealand’s land environment and biodiversity.

He described the website as vital tool  for making the institute’s research, science and solutions valuable, interesting and accessible to a wide audience.
