Tongariro Whanganui Taranaki Conservancy, and how you can get involved.

March 10, 2016

The places, plants and animals the Department of Conservation (DOC) looks after belong to you. DOC manages them on your behalf.

Conservation Management Strategies (CMS) are plans for how this happens.

You may be aware that recently the old Whanganui and Tongariro Taupo Conservancies merged to create one new conservancy – the Tongariro Whanganui Taranaki (TWT) Conservancy.

Each conservancy had its own CMS. The old Whanganui Conservancy CMS had just started its review process and the Tongariro Taupo Conservancy's review was planned to start in 2011. The newly merged conservancy will develop one CMS to manage the Ruapehu, Whanganui, Taranaki and Taupo-nui-a-Tia Areas.

If you were involved in Whanganui Conservancy's preliminary consultation, that this will be taken into account when we begin the review of the new Conservancies CMS.
