This is an opportunity for everyone with an interest in kauri to contribute.
There are three rounds of consultation this year. MPI are doing this to get the best result for kauri by working on the future and coming up with actions together.
This first round is to refresh the future direction for managing kauri dieback disease. In rounds two and three later this year, you’ll see (and get to comment) on the big picture view created from your feedback in round one. This will inform how the National Pest Management Plan can best be used to support the work to protect kauri – and you’ll get a say on that too. We’ll keep you updated with these consultation dates.
Remember to go to www.kauridieback.co.nz to have your say before 16 July 2018.
