What is biodiversity?

Biodiversity is the variety and variability of all forms of life on earth - the micro-organisms, plant and animals species, the genes they contain and the communities they belong to

What happens after consultation?

The strategy will be further refined to reflect community views on what they want for the natural environment. The strategy and action plan will be developed for Council endorsement in May 2018.
