Increased DOC funding
Something that has flown under the radar for many is that under the current government DOC's budget has been slashed and burned. Not only is preserving the conservation estate vital for it's own sake, it also brings in a lot of tourists. Funding to DOC needs to be increased, possibly in part through looking at charges for some heavy use areas (Tongariro Crossing springs to mind).
