The Government sought public input for the development of its proposed conservation and environment science roadmap. The roadmap will identify the areas of scientific knowledge needed by government over the next 20 years to support decision-making for conservation and environmental policy and management to achieve the most desirable future for New Zealand.

We held hui and meetings to provide information and enable further discussion.
