Protecting and restoring our region’s diverse and vulnerable ecosystems helps to increase the health of our waterways, biodiversity, and communities.

There are at least 45 distinct ecosystem types in the Wellington region. These range from alpine tussock lands and native forests, to wetlands, estuaries and floodplains, and the coastal rocky cliffs and sandy beaches.

Some ecosystem types are particularly at risk, such as coastal dunes and wetlands.
