What is Harbourwatch?

Looking out for our harbour

Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour is a treasured place, home to people and communities, natural habitats and taonga species. LPC is committed to protecting our harbour during the Port’s recovery. Environmental monitoring is an essential part of this. LPC created, and will maintain, Harbourwatch as a place to bring all our monitoring into one place so that harbour residents can easily access the information we gather.
