Achieving results for the environment through technology

Manaaki Whenua is the Crown Research Institute for our land and we are using technology in innovative ways that goes far beyond our borders

What's it all about?

Join us online as our researchers showcase their work and the impacts of technology on our environment.

We will host a live Q+A with Ben Jolly and Andrew McMillan who will showcase technology ranging from terrestrial laser scanners and drones to virtual reality headsets and how they can benefit research of our environment. Viewers will be able to look at the equipment throughout the session and ask Ben and Andrew questions.

As well as our live session, you can interact on our website to explore stories about science that is "good for the world". Want to understand more about mānuka honey and New Zealand's honey bee population? Maybe you want to take a tour of a research lab and understand the biotech methods we use. Or you could check out the innovative ways of finding alternative sources of Omega 3 fatty acids to lead the way in sustainability.
