Pauatahanui 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 Pauatahanui Inlet because we work to promote recognition of the ecological, recreational and cultural values of the Inlet.
