Biodiversity Hawke's Bay is committed to working together to ensure that Hawke's Bay's biodiversity is enhanced, healthy and functioning.
Biodiversity Hawke's Bay was created out of the vision for the future of the Hawke's Bay Biodiversity Strategy 2015 - 2050 (Strategy). The Hawke's Bay Biodiversity Action Plan 2017 - 2020 was created as the mechanism by which the Strategy was put into action - working together to implement the five key objectives of the Strategy.
Implementation of the Action Plan created two entities to lead and nurture the restoration of indigenous biodiversity in Hawke's Bay - the Hawke's Bay Biodiversity Trust and the Biodiversity Hawke's Bay Incorporated Society.
The Biodiversity Hawke's Bay Incorporated Society (the Society) AGM is scheduled for Tuesday 19 October 2021 (see below for more details). The Strategy Stewardship Group (SSG) is the governance group for the Incorporated Society and serve as Officers of the Society. The SSG comprises between five and nine officers, and we are in a position at this AGM to call for two nominations to the SSG.
At the AGM we will farewell two dedicated and passionate volunteers who have tirelessly given so much of their knowledge, commitment and time to grow and lead Biodiversity Hawke's Bay to where it is today. Kay Griffiths, previously the Chair of the Incorporated Society, and Charles Daugherty, Chair of the HB Biodiversity Trust will be standing down as Officers of the Society.
If you are interested in being nominated for the SSG, to lead the membership based organisation into the next phase of growth, continuing to provide effective stewardship of the HB Biodiversity Strategy 2015 - 2050, then please complete the nomination form and return to firstname.lastname@example.org before 5.00pm on Monday 18 October 2021.
Please note that to hold office as a Strategy Stewardship Group member, the individual must be a member or a representative of a non-individual member of the incorporated society. Click here for membership details.

Whatungarongaro te tangata toitu te whenua - As man disappears from sight, the land remains.
The diversity of life forms, so numerous we have yet to identify most of them, is the greatest wonder of this planet.
E O Wilson, ecologist
It is that range of biodiversity that we must care for - the whole thing - rather than just one or two stars.
Sir David Attenborough
