ChCh Plants & Animals Released For Community Input
Strategy for Christchurch plants and animals to be released for community input
Christchurch residents will soon be invited to comment on what needs to be done to conserve and restore our city’s unique biodiversity ( plants and animals) for future generations.
The Christchurch City Council approved its draft biodiversity strategy for consultation today and it will be available for public comment from 14 July. Its release will make us one of the first cities in the country to formally contribute towards the goals of the New Zealand Biodiversity Strategy.
Christchurch’s Biodiversity Strategy outlines visions for what can be achieved for plants and animals in our city; some of the reasons why biodiversity is important; and why biodiversity is important to Ngai Tahu. It also describes the wild plants and animals of Christchurch; issues that they face and proposes an action plan for nurturing our biodiverse city.
Copies of the draft will be available from City
Council Service Centres/Libraries and from 4th Floor
reception at the Tuam Street Civic Offices from 14 July. The
Strategy will also be available to view and make submissions
