Protecting the values of the Inlet
The only remaining large estuarine wetland in the lower half of the North Island of New Zealand.
It is classified as a ‘Site of Special Wildlife Interest‘ and an area of ‘Significant Conservation Value’.
But it is at risk, mainly from human activities in both the Inlet itself and throughout the whole catchment.
