Preserving forest gems, Piako District, Waikato Te tiaki i ngā taonga māpuna a Tāne

They shelter so many species, including long-tailed bats, native passionfruit, and tree wētā, but Waikato’s kahikatea | Dacrycarpus dacrydioides forests have been so reduced that only a fragile 1% remains.

***

He tini ngā momo kararehe e tāwharaungia ana ki ngā uru kahikatea o Waikato, pēnei i te pekapeka, i te kōhia, i te wētā. Hāunga tēnei, kotahi ōrau anake o ēnei uru e toe ana. 

Ngāti Te Oro and the Piako community, along with Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research, are taking action by trapping pests like weasels and rats.

The Ngā rākau ❘ Trees plant identification resource was developed and published as part of this work.
