Review a risk assessment critique of the Population Management Plan for the New Zealand sea lion. The objectives of the critique are to:
- Review how effectively the risk assessment process used in the draft Population Management Plan (PMP) addresses the intent of relevant legislation (Marine Mammals Protection Act 1978).
- Review how the risk assessment in the draft PMP compares to recognised good practise in risk assessment, including adherence to Australian/New Zealand Standard Risk Management (AS/NZS 4360:2004).
- Provide a concise and plain English report that critiques the relevance and appropriateness of the risk analysis in the draft PMP.
