Pāuatahanui Inlet is the only large estuarine wetland left in the lower half of New Zealand's North Island. It is at risk, mainly from human activities in both the Inlet and its catchment. We call ourselves the Guardians of Pāuatahanui Inlet because we work to promote recognition of the ecological, recreational and cultural values of the Inlet.
On this website you can read about how we care for the Inlet and promote its wellbeing with central and local government. You can learn about our activities and policies, and read our newsletters and annual reports. You will find scientific information about the Inlet and its catchment and links to relevant research. The section 'The Inlet' contains information about the natural and human history and current concerns about threats to Inlet ecology. Teachers can download our educational resources. We also have an expanding 'Rainy day' section.
