Mercury Bay

About Us

Mercury Bay is located on the East Coast of the Coromandel Peninsula.

It encompasses some of the most beautiful areas of New Zealand including Tairua through to Pauanui and northwards up to Whangapoua.

It also contains special archaeological sites such as a significant Maori Pa site. 

The Branch meets on a monthly basis.

Local Issues

Making sure we protect and care for our native species and their habitats is one of the main focuses for the branch.

Our area is home to north island brown kiwi, dotterel, hotchsetter and our critically endangered archey's frog. Mining, coastal development and erosion are some of the main threats to habitat in this area.

 

Get involved

New members and volunteers are always welcome to get involved in the work we do. Feel free to come along to one of our monthly meetings or some of our talks.
