              Dolphins of Aotearoa (Hardback)

              By Peart, Raewyn

              Dolphins of Aotearoa explores the ongoing relationship between humans and dolphins in New Zealand. Over this nation's rich history, numerous people, both Maori and Pakeha, have sought out dolphins and significant numbers of dolphins have sought out people. For many, encountering ...dolphins has been a profound and life-changing experience. This book tells the stories of many of these remarkable encounters, featuring all of the famous dolphins, such as Pelorus Jack from the early years of the 20th century, Opo in the 1950s, Maui and more recently Moko. In addition it chronicles the ultimately doomed attempts to keep dolphins in captivity in facilities such as Marineland in Napier. Importantly, Dolphins of Aotearoa also summarises the work of the dedicated scientists and researchers who over recent decades have learnt so much about our dolphins, and whose research has given great impetus to the conservation of these remarkable creatures. Extensively researched and lavishly illustrated with historic and contemporary photographs, and incorporating a guide to all of the dolphins of New Zealand, this is an important and much needed addition to the literature about New Zealand's marine world. It will have huge appeal.

              This report explores the catastrophic loss of New Zealand's special places to inappropriate subdivision and development. It follows on from Reclaiming Our Heritage: the New Zealand Landscape Conference that was held in July 2003. That event began to scope the scale of the problem... and highlight some of the key issues. This report builds on that base and provides the first comprehensive look at the impact of the loss of landscape on our cultural identity and economic well-being.

              Vanishing Nature: Facing New Zealand's Biodiversity Crisis (Paperback)

              The book presents an exhaustive analysis of New Zealand's biodiversity loss and its conservation. The authors argue that the fundamental drivers of harm as well as the barriers to effective protection must be addressed if we are to halt the loss of our native species and ecosyste...ms and maintain our natural capital. This will require novel economic institutions designed to bring private and public interests toward alignment. The book includes a comprehensive suite of strategic, tactical and practical solutions and finishes with a vision and action plan that EDS is committed to champion in the coming years. Biodiversity loss is not inevitable, it is a choice.New Zealand's remarkable indigenous biodiversity is fragile and it's in crisis. Our economic institutions promote biodiversity loss by not accounting for environmental costs and our laws and policies are unable to prevent the resulting ongoing losses. The design and implementation of policy and programmes that safeguard ecosystems require both an understanding of political, economic and social factors influencing biodiversity protection as well as being founded on established ecological principles. The Environmental Defence Society sits at the interface of science and policy, working hard to influence politics and society to establish more effective systems of environmental governance.

              The report probes the underlying constructs behind the QMS and the manner in which they have played out within the New Zealand context. It scrutinises the operation of the fisheries management system within the broader marine environment. Overall, it evaluates the extent to which... current approaches are sufficient to support thriving fisheries and communities, supported by healthy marine ecosystems, for the benefit of current and future generations. The report concludes that, although there is considerable support for the quota management system, there are serious issues with the way fisheries management is currently undertaken that need urgent attention. The purpose of the report is to inform and contribute to debate about the future of New Zealand's fisheries management system. It has been written with a broad audience in mind, ranging from those who have an interest in the health of New Zealand's marine environment but know little about fisheries management, to those who are or have been directly involved with the system. To improve accessibility, key points have been illustrated with local and international case studies, direct quotes and other illustrative material. The report includes recommendations for the way forward and practical ways to begin implementing ecosystem-based management approaches.

              Regional policy statements were some of the earliest documents prepared under the Resource Management Act 1991 when it came into force almost 20 years ago. Many are now under review with second generation documents being prepared. Regional policy statements are very significant. ...They provide an integrated overview of how terrestrial, freshwater and marine resources will be managed. They also influence the content of regional and district plans which can include enforceable environmental rules. Unfortunately, most first generation regional policy statements have not lived up to their potential. This guide summarises learnings from first generation regional policy statements. It sets out what should be included in second generation documents to ensure that they drive a significant improvement in environmental outcomes on the ground. The guide is designed to provide practical guidance to all those involved in the development of regional policy statements. It will be invaluable for elected members and officers from regional councils and territorial authorities, officials from government agencies, iwi and hapu resource managers and other stakeholders from the business, community and environmental sectors.
