Introduction

Find agendas, minutes, and reports from meetings of the New Zealand sea lion Forum, Advisory Group and Technical Working Group.

Highlights

The Forum and Advisory Group were established as a part of the Engagement work stream of the New Zealand sea lion Threat Management Plan (NZSL TMP). The groups enable iwi, the Crown and stakeholders to come together so they can discuss and prioritise recovery actions under the NZSL TMP.

  • The Forum focuses on facilitating population growth on the South Island/Te Waipounamu and Stewart Island/Rakiura.
  • The Advisory Group focuses on halting the decline and facilitating population growth across the species range, with emphasis on the subantarctic breeding colonies.

These groups meet at least annually to make recommendations and prioritise actions for the year ahead, prior to a full review of the NZSL TMP in 2022. Learn more about sea lion working groups and meetings.
