Kaimai catchments state of environment report

State of the environment assessment for the catchments of the Kaimai Range and Northern Mamaku Plateau

Executive summary

The Department of Conservation, Bay of Plenty Regional Council, and Environment Waikato have formed a working party to cooperatively explore options for a joint planning and management approach for the Kaimai-Mamaku Ranges, in order to protect and enhance the significant catchment, conservation, and recreational values that this area provides. The objective for this project was to provide a comprehensive report on the environmental state of the Kaimai Range, including all stream catchments that flow from the Kaimai-Mamaku Ranges into Tauranga Harbour and the Waihou River, also encompassing the northern catchments of the Otanewainuku-Otawa Range that extend north-east from the Mamaku Plateau.
