This is the Conservation Management Strategy (CMS) for the Northland Conservancy of the Department of Conservation. The CMS is a statutory document and has been prepared in accordance with Part IIIA of the Conservation Act 1987.

Its purpose is to establish the objectives for the integrated management of the natural and historic resources, including any species, managed by the Department, under the Wildlife Act 1953, the Marine Reserves Act 1971, the Reserves Act 1977, the Wild Animal Control Act 1977, the Marine Mammals Protection Act 1978, the National Parks Act 1980, the New Zealand Walkways Act 1990 or any of them, and for recreation, tourism and other conservation purposes.

The CMS also identifies and describes all protected areas managed by the Department within the boundaries of the strategy.T

The Northland CMS was approved by the New Zealand Conservation Authority on 15 April 1999. It expired in 2009, and Northland conservancy has begun the review process, which will involve informal discussion and feedback, followed by statutory consultation.
