Northern Wetlands - restoring a culturally significant dune lake ecosystem

Lake Ngatu is part of a system of dune lakes and a popular reserve in Kaitaia. Since 1980, The Bushland Trust has worked with other members of the community to re-vegetate the area surrounding the lake in native plants and grasses. Lake Ngatu is a taonga enjoyed by everyone, and is an excellent example of how a community can get involved in wetland conservation.
