Kia ora e hoa,


We are a charitable trust formed by a group of people who share a love of New Zealand’s native freshwater critters and ecosystems.


By working together, we believe every individual and group can play a part in not only enhancing, but celebrating our country’s unique and fascinating freshwater critters and ecosystems. Let us tell you about our story......

What are we working on?


We focus on a range of on-the-ground projects in Canterbury, Otago and Southland, as well as educational and advocacy projects - Wherever we can have the best impact! Find out what we are currently working on......

Ngā manaaki ki ngā wāhi waimāori katoa - Caring for all of our waterways

We are a registered New Zealand charitable trust, relying 100% on donations and project grants- a huge thanks for any financial support you can give us!

Learn and have fun


Working Waters Trust has created tailored resources for the young and slightly older of us that celebrate our freshwater ecosystems and the critters that live in them. 

A large thank you to our core sponsors, and to many others who help us with our mahi
