2009 Report to members


(For the year ended 28 February 2009)

A year of challenge
In a year of enormous changes to
our global economy, the challenges
of conservation were no less
challenging.
I am pleased to report that Forest &
Bird has remained at the forefront
of environmental advocacy during
these challenging times – we
represent, more than ever, a
committed voice for nature.
At times it can seem as if
the environmental challenges
now facing our planet are
insurmountable as a world economy
that has been driven by non-
renewable resources comes to
its inevitable conclusion. Yet as
conservationists we must rise to
meet formidable challenges such as
climate change, not least because
humankind may find itself on
the endangered lists if we do not
succeed.
As Forest & Bird heads into its 86th
year, it is an organisation in good
heart, well-prepared to continue
its crucial role at the frontline of
environmental advocacy, speaking
and acting on behalf of our most
precious and unique native plants,
animals and wild places.
Throughout the year Forest & Bird
has helped achieved many inspiring
and significant victories on behalf
of nature. I am delighted to report
to you many of those successes in
this annual report.

Effective pest control


A key factor in the success of all of these partnerships is the
use of effective control of the many introduced pests which
are the major threat to our forests and other native habitats
and our native wildlife. Our continued advocacy of effective
pest control has been crucial in keeping many of our most
vulnerable species alive.
In April we welcomed the decision by a ministerial panel – on
which Forest & Bird was represented – to support effective
means of controlling deer, thar, chamois and pigs in the wild.
The panel’s recommendations are important official recognition
that conservation must remain a priority in managing these
pest species.
We were also extremely pleased to learn that Government-
funded pest control was implemented – in direct response
to Forest & Bird’s campaigns – in critical areas including the
Kaimai Ranges and Waitutu Forest.
Forest & Bird’s own nationwide network of volunteers is active
on the “frontline” of pest control around New Zealand. Our
inaugural Pestbusters Award – which was awarded to the South
Taranaki Branch – recognised their tremendous commitment
DOC

in fighting the battle against pests.


Marine protection
Of course the conservation challenges do not stop at the
shoreline, and Forest & Bird was just as active in advocating for
better protection of the marine environment as it was on land.
Forest & Bird welcomed the introduction of measures for which
we have long campaigned to protect endangered Hector’s and
Maui’s dolphins from human-induced threats, in particular
entanglement in set nets. While measures introduced by the
Fisheries Minister would have come into effect in October,
legal challenges by the fishing industry have delayed their
implementation in some areas. We hope their action will prove
to be only a short delay in seeing these important measures
introduced to protect these unique marine mammals.
The year saw considerable progress in achieving better
protection for seabirds. Our involvement in developing a new
National Plan of Action on seabirds (which will be finalised
soon) will achieve measures to significantly reduce by-catch
deaths of seabirds. Work has also progressed towards
nominating Important Bird Areas that will give international
status to New Zealand marine areas and the seabirds that are
found in them.
Our Places for Penguins project is also making good progress
in establishing better protection and habitat restoration for little
blue penguins. One very special penguin, Koro, found washed

up on a Wellington beach in very poor health, was “adopted”


by Forest & Bird, nursed back to health, and eventually
released back into the wild. We hope Places for Penguins will
ensure that all little blue penguins will have the best chance of
survival.

Freshwater
Freshwater also became a major focus
for Forest & Bird during the year. Our
review, with Fish & Game, of the Clean
Streams Accord highlighted concerns
about the impact of agriculture on
our rivers and lakes, and we continue
to lobby for improved environmental
performance from the sector.
Forest & Bird was among those who
opposed a hydro dam proposal which
would have a severely detrimental
impact on the Mokihinui River on the
West Coast and the surrounding beech
forest – the proposal by Meridian is still
under consideration but we are hopeful
that the conservation values of the
Mokihinui and other rivers will not be
destroyed by allowing environmentally
damaging schemes to go ahead.

a considerable success.

Political change
The general election in 2008 was a key opportunity
for Forest & Bird to engage in the political process
and ensure that conservation was a key election
issue. Our Envirovote political forums ensured that
conservation had a high profile in the campaign,
and our Envirovote election guide helped voters
make an informed choice on green issues.
Following the election we have given post-election
briefings to new ministers and will continue to
engage and challenge the new government and all
political parties on conservation matters.
Communicating conservation
A major new development in bringing Forest & Bird’s
work to the public is the creation of our beautiful new
website, which is proving a success in educating and
inspiring people about conservation and how they
can help Forest & Bird’s work. Already the number
of people visiting our website, joining and donating on
line has increased significantly since the website was
launched in October.
In tandem with the new website we have introduced
improvements to Forest & Bird magazine, and this year
will see the size and quality of the magazine increased.
Our reader survey in May found that 9 out of 10
readers rate the magazine as excellent (54%) or very
good (36%) but we can always do better – our editorial
content this year will reflect the wishes of readers to see
more world-class articles and photographs featuring
our amazing wildlife.

Membership numbers remain healthy, with 1000 new Forest &


Bird members and 1000 new Kiwi Conservation Club members
joining during the year. Overall membership numbers remain
steady, which is an encouraging result of efforts to ensure that
Forest & Bird is an organisation that is attractive and relevant to
New Zealanders from a variety of backgrounds and age groups.
