Implementation of the Action Plan has created three entities to lead and nurture the restoration of indigenous biodiversity in Hawke's Bay. Together they form the umbrella group know as Biodiversity Hawke's Bay.
- The Hawke's Bay Biodiversity Forum will engage all residents of Hawke's Bay in environmental education and hands-on restoration programmes. It will grow the conservation community and connect conservation organisations and community based environmental groups. Our first Forum was held in October 2018, check it out here.
- The Biodiversity Guardians of Hawke's Bay act as Kaitiaki for the Vision and Goals of the Strategy. A formally constituted group, the Guardians oversee the work of the Forum and help connect and advise the many agencies and community-based groups working to implement the Strategy. Anyone can join the Guardians and membership benefits include quarterly newsletters, invitation to forum events and networking opportunities with other like-minded people.
- The Hawke's Bay Biodiversity Foundation will enable the Strategy. The foundation will work to secure the funds needed to rapidly grow the level of biodiversity related activities in our region - beyond the 'business-as-usual' funds already available to Councils and other management agencies. A primary objective of the Trust will be to build a $10M endowment fund within ten years, that will, in perpetuity, provide funding for a nature rich future for Hawke's Bay.
