The Whangarei Ecological District comprises a range of landscapes with significant wildlife and vegetation values.

This report briefly describes these outstanding places, but in itself does not ensure their future preservation.

Remaining natural areas of the Whangarei Ecological District need scientifically based management that goes beyond physical protection if they are to survive with most of their features intact.

In most cases, management needs to be active, involving landowners and the wider community, including iwi and councils, if these special habitats are to survive for the enjoyment of future generations in years to come.
