Regional Biodiversity Strategy
The Hawke's Bay Biodiversity Strategy has been adopted by Hawke's Bay Regional Counil (29 July 2015) as a regional approach to improve habitats and support native species in Hawke's Bay. Biodiversity is the diversity of living things, and this strategy takes responsibility for improving native species and populations in Hawke's Bay. It is also flexible and provides for introduced species, particularly where these provide habitat, food and shelter for native species.
HBRC has been the facilitator to develop this shared strategy since 2012. The strategy is a blueprint, weaving together what each organisation does best, and adding a clear vision for how they will work together, to include Māori values and involve the wider community.
