Consultation begins on kauri dieback programme
Public feedback will help shape a refreshed approach for combating kauri dieback disease.
Biosecurity New Zealand (part of the Ministry for Primary Industries), which manages the kauri dieback programme alongside partner organisations, is asking for people’s thoughts on plans for the future management of the disease.
This involves 3 rounds of public consultation, the second of which gets underway on 20 August.
A first round of consultation has recently been held, and feedback from this has helped inform the development of a refreshed management strategy.
The second phase of consultation runs from 20 August to 10 September. Public meetings are also being held in kauri regions from 27 August.
