“A ka mea a Meri, Ka whakanui toku wairua i te Ariki, E hari ana toku wairua ki te Atua, ki toku Kaiwhakaora; He nui hoki nga mahi a te Mea Kaha ki ahau; he tapu hoki tona ingoa.” (Luke 1:46-47, 49)

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.
