As Aucklanders we are the guardians of a unique environment. From the internationally recognised native forests of the Waitakere and Hunua Ranges to the Hauraki Gulf Islands, and our extensive coastline, streams, lakes and volcanoes - Auckland is a special place.
Our region is also the fastest growing in Australasia and is home to over 1.4 million people - more than a third of New Zealand’s total population. Human activity and this growing population are putting an increasing pressure on our land and water environments.
That means we all have a part to play in reducing the negative impacts of pollution on Auckland’s beautiful natural environment.
