How you can protect wetlands

Me pēhea te tiaki i ngā repo

​You can protect wetlands by:

  • using existing tracks and boardwalks and observing from the edges
  • not disturbing wildlife - take binoculars and use bird hides
  • maintaining natural flow of water
  • cleaning your footwear
  • cleaning fishing and boating equipment to stop the spread of Didymo
  • keeping litter and garden waste out of wetlands
  • keeping dogs from wetland areas
  • keeping stock from wetland areas through fencing
  • controlling pest plants and animals in and around wetlands.
