Hosted by Restoring Takarunga Hauraki
Our plantings provide a habitat for wetland birds, clean the water and protect shellfish from silt.
Mangrove areas sequester carbon at greater rates than any other ecosystem types as well as being nurseries for the fish in our estuaries and also in the wider Tīkapa Moana/Hauraki Gulf.
You can help:
- by joining our volunteers for weed busters or predator control
- by creating ‘halo’ areas of native plants in local gardens and with street trees
- by contributing to the 5-minute bird count twice a year to track our progress
- by keeping dogs under strict control to prevent them from chasing vulnerable birds so our estuarine species are safe - dogs and people are the main threat to them.
