    Abstract Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) has responsibilities to manage biodiversity under the Resource Management Act 1991. Various council programmes that contribute to the management of biodiversity are consolidated in the Biodiversity department. The department is guided by the Regional Policy Statement, regional plans, and GWRC’s Biodiversity Strategy.
    The Biodiversity department has two core functions:
    • To protect or restore indigenous biodiversity in priority areas
    • To provide advice on matters relating to indigenous biodiversity and ecosystems and advocate for their protection and sound management
    This Operational Plan explains the department’s functions and management structure, sets out the associated work programmes and describes the nature and scope of its activities.
