I presented this report to the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board today as they are yet to seek advice from a shorebird expert at Auckland Council in developing their Open Space Network Plan (OSNP).
- Shorebird expert to review the report.
- Local Boards commit to reverse declining shorebird numbers.
- OSNP revised with dedicated and enhanced shorebird roosts.
- Serious investments in shorebird roost protection and enhancement.
I have also attached my amendments to the OSNP and my submission on the OSNP above.
