The Southland Conservation Board has a conservation advisory and community liaison role in the Southland and Fiordland regions.

The boards's area of interest includes large forested mountainous areas such as Waitutu, Takitimu, Eyre and Blue Mountains and the Longwoods; diverse coastlines, large open vistas and important estuaries; and scattered forest, wetland and grassland remnants - areas such as Curio Bay and the Waituna Wetlands included.


The board meets four times a year at various locations. A public forum session where members of the public can talk to the board on conservation issues is held during each meeting. The full agenda for meetings is generally available one week before the meeting date from the board support officer.
