Threatened Species Strategy

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:09 pm on 10 May 2017

The government has outlined its plan to deal with what it calls, New Zealand's 'unenviable record of extinction'. The draft Threatened Species Strategy is designed to halt the decline of New Zealand's threatened species and restore them to healthy populations. Dr Mike Dickison is curator of natural history at the Whanganui Regional Museum. He's at Te Papa at the moment and he's been looking at the document.
