Introduction

Visit Waihola Waipori wetlands with your students. Here they can discover the many plants and animals that depend upon wetlands for their survival.

    The Waihola Waipori wetlands, south-west of Dunedin, are regarded as the best example of this type of habitat on the Otago coast. The area is nationally and internationally recognised as a precious refuge for many threatened and endangered species of plant, fish and bird.

    The teaching resource focuses on the Sinclair wetlands, a privately owned property within the wider Waihola Waipori wetlands.

    In a field trip to Waihola Waipori wetlands students can discover the many plants and animals that depend upon wetlands for their survival.
