Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

The Government has purchased Ngunguru Spit in Northland following years of hard work to secure the iconic coastal habitat so it can be preserved for the benefit of all New Zealanders, Conservation Minister Kate Wilkinson announced today.

The Department of Conservation has acquired Ngunguru Spit from Todd Property Group. In a related transaction, Todd Property Group has purchased the defunct Napier Hospital site. The details of the agreements are subject to confidentiality clauses.

The landscape, biodiversity and cultural values are best managed by keeping the area as open space so the community can enjoy it.

“Relatively intact ecologically representative sand spits are very rare. Four separate assessments, undertaken between 1982 and 2004, all ranked Ngunguru as nationally significant and the highest priority for protection in Northland,” Ms Wilkinson says.
