Numerous government and community organisations are involved in protecting and restoring braided rivers. Conservation activities related to specific plants and animals, including the control of pest species, are listed on individual river and ecology pages.
Many community-led conservation projects are operated through river and landcare conservation groups working with iwi, local and/or regional councils (in Canterbury this is Environment Canterbury or ECan), the Department of Conservation (DOC), often in conjunction with research programmes through universities and Crown Research Institutes such as Landcare Research, and environmental consultancy firms.
