Find out about the Northland Conservation Board, including meeting dates and minutes, media releases from the board, and information on district boundaries and board members.

The Northland Conservation Board/Te Runanga Papa Atawhai O Te Taitokerau serves a conservation advisory role, along with offering community perspective on conservation management issues for the Northland region.

A major responsibility of the board is overseeing the implementation of the Northland Conservation Management Strategy (CMS). The CMS implements general policies and establishes objectives for the integrated management of natural and historic resources, including any species managed by DOC, and for recreation, tourism and other conservation purposes.


The board meets four times a year at various locations. A public forum session where members of the public can talk to the board on conservation issues is held during each meeting. The full agenda for meetings is generally available one week before the meeting date from the board support officer.
