Rakatu Wetlands

These spring-fed remnant wetlands in old channels of the Waiau River have been complemented with 50 ha of open water.

They were created for the benefit of fish (both native fish and introduced trout) and waterfowl as well as protected birds species, to mitigate and remedy the adverse effects of the Manapouri Hydroelectric Power Scheme.
