Wetlands

Learn about what a wetland is, the process Council uses to identify one and how you can respond if you have a wetland on your property. You can also find useful information about wetland restoration.

Wetlands have become increasingly valued over recent years, especially since:

  • they now only cover less than 10% of former coverage across NZ
  • it is estimated that they cover about 5% of the former area in Tasman’s lowland areas & valley floors on private land.
