Saltmarsh and mangroves

During the development of the proposed regional plan, council undertook a mapping exercise to identify saltmarsh and mangrove habitats in the Northland Region.

These layers can be viewed by the public via our online maps (biodiversity wetlands)

These worksheets display the extent and location of the mapped saltmarsh and mangrove habitat in the major estuaries and harbours around the Northland Coast. The worksheets also include oblique aerial images of significant saltmarsh habitats and a summary of a summary of significant avifaunal (bird) values associated with these saltmarsh.
