Key Issues

  • Biodiversity and Biosecurity issues – including some shared projects with other working groups.
  • Engagement with the Department of Conservation (DOC), the NZ Conservation Authority and Boards and conservation or biosecurity relevant agencies including MAF, MfE, Biosecurity NZ and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Conservation management and associated planning topics and tools eg; NZ Biodiversity Strategy, game and pest issues
  • Work on specific aspects of the RMA (which may overlap with the work of the Catchment and Coastal working group).
