In 2010, the newly elected government of New Zealand, of neo-liberal orientation, has adopted its Business Growth Agenda. This has been implemented through a series of legal, policy and organizational changes, affecting the governance of the Conservation Estate. This is the collective name for 60 types of protected areas (PA), covering one third of the country, and managed by the national agency – the department of Conservation [DOC]. To operate inside PA, businesses need a concession, which can be a permit, license, a lease (for exclusive land use) or a combination of these. The main aims of the reforms, in the policy domains of nature protection and tourism, are: 1) to “increase business opportunities in public conservation land” and 2) to achieve ‘conservation gain’, through voluntary work and donations from individuals and businesses (DOC, 2015a:42).
