New Zealand Biodiversity Strategy

The Department of Conservation (DOC) is leading the development of a new biodiversity strategy. A consultation on the proposed strategy closed 22 September 2019.

New Zealand’s last biodiversity strategy laid out actions to protect our nature until the end of 2019. The new strategy will set a vision and guide our biodiversity work for the next 50 years.

DOC held a public consultation on Te Koiroa o te Koiora from 5 August until 22 September 2019.
