Te taiao taiwhenua
Auckland’s natural environment is diverse and magnificent, from harbours, lakes and streams to productive soils, indigenous forest, bush ranges and islands. Life in Auckland is supported and sustained by our natural environment, it is central to our identity and a main reason that people choose to visit, live, work and play here. For that reason it is important to understand what is happening in the environment and to be able to provide robust evidence for decision-making.
