The former Biodiversity Information Online (BIO) website originally described the funded programmes of the New Zealand Biodiversity Strategy under the International Convention on Biological Diversity.
The BIO site was sponsored by the central government agencies that have a statutory role in managing and conserving New Zealand's unique biodiversity –
- Department of Conservation (DOC)
- Ministry for the Environment (MFE)
- Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) - formerly Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and Ministry of Fisheries
This section links to agencies, groups, organisations, and networks involved in biodiversity protection in New Zealand.
