This Island Operating Procedure (IOP) clarifies DOC processes on Rangitoto and Motutapu Islands, including those for biosecurity, health and safety and archaeological site management.
Several trusts and concessionaires operate on each island alongside a DOC staff team. These operating procedures help those working on the islands protect their biodiversity and cultural landscapes. It also supports entities on the island to understand each other’s roles and sets expectations for interaction.
Rangitoto and Motutapu Islands are close to the heart of Auckland. They are part of the Hauraki Gulf Maritime Park, and amongst the 220 offshore islands that DOC manages.
These documents are being made available outside DOC to share our best practice. Any use by members of the public is at their own risk and DOC disclaims all liability in reference to that risk.
As the documents were written for DOC staff they may include DOC-specific terms and reference internal documents only accessible to DOC staff. You may need further help to do the work described and also need to get authorisation. Caveats may apply.
