Forest & Bird presented this poster at the NZ Rivers Group 2022 conference in Lower Hutt. It outlines our attempt to protect the habitat, natural character, and extent of the Ngaruroro River through a Water Conservation Order Environment Court process. We hope it can inform future management of rivers in Aotearoa, and will be particularly helpful for regional councils looking to give effect to the National Policy Statement for Freshwater (2020).

Nature needs your support

Supporting Forest & Bird is one of the best things you can do for New Zealand's environment. We need people like you to support us, so that nature will always have a voice.
