In the “Protecting and restoring our natural heritage - a practical guide”
Over the last twelve years, the Department of Conservation nursery at Motukarara has assisted many restoration projects by producing native plants and providing information. The demand for up to date information on the planning and management of these projects has increased, as more protection and restoration projects have been initiated. This guide aims to provide the information that many people are seeking, and was produced from additional conservation awareness funding for green issues in the 2000 Budget, and a contribution from Landcare Research.
By bringing together detailed information and project experiences, this guide will help community groups, local bodies and individuals to initiate projects, and make best use of resources to protect and restore our native plants and ecosystems.
The Department welcomes comments on the guide and any corrections or additional information. These will be collated and considered in future revisions.
