Have Your Say on Aotearoa Biodiversity - Upcoming Hui - 23rd Jan 2019

The New Zealand biodiversity strategy (the Strategy) sets out NZ’s contribution towards stemming global biodiversity loss – through the conservation of NZ’s indigenous biodiversity, as well as NZ’s approach to the biodiversity of introduced species.

NZ’s biodiversity is unique with a high number of species that are found nowhere else in the world. For many NZers the natural environment, including biodiversity and taonga species is part of our identity and whakapapa.
