NZ govt launches new "greenprint" (1 Viewer)


The Government has acknowledged our current regulations aren't keeping up with the scale of biodiversity loss across New Zealand – and has launched an ambitious new "greenprint" to turn the picture around by 2050.

Almost 4000 of our known native species – among them kiwi, kākāpō, kōkako, Maui's dolphin and yellow-eyed penguins, or hoiho - are now threatened with extinction.

Remarkably, that includes 90 per cent of seabirds, 76 per cent of freshwater fish and 84 per cent of reptiles, along with 46 per cent of vascular plants.
