Nature in Aotearoa New Zealand is in serious trouble, says The Conversation. With many of our species and habitats at risk of disappearing forever, the government’s 2020 biodiversity strategy sets the scene in stark terms: “Around 4,000 species are threatened or at risk of extinction. Many plants and wildlife continue to decline or are just hanging on.” Unfortunately, comparing the strategy and the plan recently revealed by the government, brings to light a serious disconnect between important goals and the associated actions.
