Treasuring our biodiversity: An EDS guide to the protection of New Zealand’s indigenous habitats and species

By Lucy Brake and Raewyn Peart
February 2013

This Guide has been written for people who want to know more about how to promote effective management of New Zealand’s biodiversity, and who would like to achieve better outcomes than are currently being realised. It is also designed to assist people engaged in activities impacting on biodiversity, including private landowners. The Guide focuses on what ‘good practice’ biodiversity management might look like rather than what the minimum environmental requirements are under the relevant legislation. It is therefore designed to help New Zealanders collectively secure the future of the country’s rich biodiversity heritage.
