Dune Lakes Restoration Progress in Te Hiku

Lake Ngātu, Wahakari, the Waiparera Wetland and the Rotoroa/Split lakes are all of ecological significance to the area of Te Hiku o Te Ika. The lakes and tangata whenua have a rich history and a living whakapapa.

Rangitane Marsden, CEO of Te Runanga o Ngai Takoto explains what a dune lake is and speaks about the progress of the Dune Lakes Restoration Project since it's official launch in August 2016.

The project is supported and lead by iwi and local communities to rejuvenate a number of wetlands in the Te Hiku Dune Lakes systems. As tangata whenua, local hapū and iwi can protect and improve the water quality of the area’s dune lakes and wetland.

Replanting native vegitation to the areas surrounding the lakes is an important part of the Dune Lakes Restoration Project.
