Carry out the formal mapping of important biodiversity habitat features and areas, and as allowed by the communities, Sacred Areas, Traditional Use Areas and clanship boundaries in the Rotokas, Keriaka, Torokina and Kunua areas. The final maps will be incorporated into the broader conservation plan that is in development and is projected to come from the combined work of the Rotokas Ecotourism and the University of Queensland teams. The maps will be provided to the community government and chiefs in the Rotokas, Keriaka, Torokina and Kunua areas.

Strategic Direction: 2 Integrate biodiversity conservation into local land-use and development planning
