The Pegasus Bay Coastcare Network is a joint initiative involving Hurunui District Council, Waimakariri District Council, Environment Canterbury, the Department of Conservation and Christchurch City Council. It was formed as a liaison group to promote Pegasus Bay as a unified area and to keep member groups up-to-date with activities in the Bay.
