Biodiversity Plan 2013


On 1 September 2013 the Supporters of Tiritiri Matangi published a new Biodiversity Plan for the Island. This important document will guide our management of the Island's flora and fauna until 2023 and beyond. 

The Plan, which has taken three years to prepare, presents recommendations for the future conservation and management of animals and plants on the Island, as well as providing a wealth of information on their current status. There are seven main chapters, covering vegetation, the freshwater ecosystem, birds, reptiles, bats, invertebrates and weeds, plus an introduction which provides some historical background and explains the thinking behind the Plan. Several detailed appendices give additional information, including past translocations, species lists and biosecurity measures.

The Plan is an evolving document rather than a finished product, so we expect to be issuing amended editions from time to time as we learn more about what best suits the Island and its wildlife.

Click here or on the image above to open and download a copy of the Biodiversity Plan. WARNING: The document is around 1.8 mb.
