Biodiversity Information Online

Wellington - New Zealand

The site provides access to information about New Zealand's native biodiversity, and who is doing what to conserve and manage it. It describes the 27 funded programmes of the New Zealand Biodiversity Strategy, a government initiative developed to meet one of our commitments under the international Convention on Biological Diversity. The funded programmes are all aimed at halting the decline in New Zealand's indigenous biodiversity, and protecting valuable introduced biodiversity. The site is sponsored by the four central government agencies that have a statutory role in managing and conserving New Zealand's unique biodiversity : Department of Conservation, Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Ministry for the Environment, Ministry of Fisheries. The site also aims to bring together existing resources, which are often scattered across many environmental websites and publications, so that people working in the biodiversity field can better access this knowledge.
