Did you know the Department of Conservation (DOC) manages about one third of all land in Aotearoa? That’s around eight million hectares.
DOC has some co-governance and co-management arrangements with mana wheua. Mana whenua have intrinsic connection to their whenua, and want to ensure tīpuna whenua, awa, and maunga are cared for. DOC is charged with the conservation of New Zealand's natural and historical heritage.
It sounds like the great start to a Te Tiriti relationship. But is it?
Join us from 7:00 to 8:00pm on Thursday the 12th of May. Bring the whānau.
