Biodiversity Strategy 2018

We want to know what you think about our living treasure - our biodiversity.

Biodiversity (short for biological diversity) describes the variety of all living things. It includes the range of species, their genetics, and the ecosystems where they live.

Biodiversity is essential for the functioning of ecosystems. It helps to sustain all life forms, including human.

We have developed a draft biodiversity strategy to:

  • Set out the outcomes we collectively want to achieve for Otago
  • Inform ORC work programmes
  • Establish a framework for working together

Why has ORC developed a biodiversity strategy?

There are over 70 organisations already working in biodiversity management throughout Otago. We don’t want to reinvent the wheel, which is why we want to develop a strategy that:

  • Covers the whole region
  • Coordinates our efforts so we can work collaboratively with other organisations and groups
  • Outlines the outcomes we collectively want to achieve for Otago
  • Sets out the biodiversity roles and activities that ORC will be involved in
