Pūtaiao Issue 3, August 2020


Each issue of Pūtaiao will share the benefits and impacts of our science in helping ensure a sustainable, productive future for New Zealand.

Aotearoa has a rich biodiversity, from the smallest bacteria to the largest kauri tree, but it is under threat from pressures such as invasive species, climate change, land-use intensification and conversion, mining, and urban development. Discovering, protecting and restoring this precious taonga requires exceptional science and infrastructure, practical policy, real-world tools and solutions, and everyone’s support and participation.
