The Awaawaroa Stream and Wetland Reserve traverse the mid-eastern end of Waiheke Island in a roughly north-south line.  They are home to a number of classified threatened species including tuna, giant kokopu, inanga, banded rail and spotless crake. A partnership group of community members, CVNZ, Forest & Bird, Council Biodiversity team and Local Parks staff have identified the Awaawaroa Wetland Reserve as a priority location for stream restoration on Waiheke Island and regionally.

With the help of community planting days, the wetland will have a restored native plant riparian buffer which provides a suitable habitat for native fish and bird species. In addition, wetland sedimentation will be reduced, and the water quality of the reserve will be improved. We’d love for you to come along for one or more days and help make a difference!
