Bay of Plenty Regional Council monitors the state of the region’s environment under multiple programmes. By capturing and interpreting data, we can plan, protect and sustainably manage our natural resources so our communities can thrive.
Below is a range of state of the environment reports and snapshots which show how healthy our air, land, freshwater, geothermal, coastal resources and biodiversity are.
We have created this dedicated page to share information on the state of our environment. Please click on each drop-down section for details across a range of measures. These are categorised according to our whakapapa framework, please see the image below to learn more.
The varying levels of detail under each reflect resource demand, pressures, or how quickly or slowly things change (e.g. rainfall and river levels can change hourly, bugs and fish in rivers can change over months or even years, and some deep groundwater can change over decades). We are committed to making environmental data and information as accessible as possible to the community, so please get in touch if we can assist further.
