Ecosystem Restoration on Mainland New Zealand

Mansfield, B.

Publication Date:

In this address, I want to show how this situation in New Zealand is being turned around. I will do it by demonstrating: 1) Successes we have had with redressing the declines of species, communities and ecosystems on islands, 2) How we are applying lessons learned on islands to active management of selected ecosystems on the mainland, and 3) How this approach to ecosystems has been made possible through a mandate that focuses on conservation and provides a foundation for integrated conservation management.
