DoC calls for submissions on Wellington Conservation Management Strategy

Category: national

The Department of Conservation is inviting the public to comment on its ten-year draft Wellington Conservation Management Strategy (CMS).

The boundary of this plan includes some of the most popular recreation areas in the lower North Island, including the Tararua, Ruahine, Rimutaka, and Aorangi Forest Parks.

The final Conservation Management Strategy (CMS), when approved, guides both DOC and the public about how DOC intends to manage places and native species. It also details how tangata whenua, local authorities, community, stakeholders, and others are involved and can get further involved.
