We are a not for profit organisation looking to make a positive difference for nature and the environment.
We will do this through the application and improvement of New Zealand environmental and natural resource management laws. We will research and review the application of these laws and the outcomes for the environment. We will publicise and promote our findings to the community. We will support advocacy for better outcomes for our natural taonga and the wider environment of Aotearoa. Where necessary we will take or support legal action to defend nature, combat climate change, and fight for a healthy environment for all.
We will partner with Iwi and hapu, other community groups, not-for-profits and individuals to achieve common outcomes.
ELI is a charitable Trust advised by a small expert scientific, policy and legal panel. It has a small number of employees and engages legal support and other services for individual cases and projects.
