Our land is a non-renewable resource, therefore we need to protect it and use it wisely. Bay of Plenty Regional Council works with landowners to manage and protect the region's soils, water and wildlife.
Natural resources of land in the Bay of Plenty contribute significantly to our economic, social, cultural and environmental wellbeing. They underpin our important agricultural and horticultural industries and provide for recreation, tourism, biodiversity conservation and regional identity.
We need to understand our land to use it in a sustainable manner.
