Waituna Wetlands (New Zealand) - one of the first sites in the world to be named "a wetland of international significance" under the RAMSAR Convention

This area was one of the first sites in the world to be named "a wetland of international significance"...

under the RAMSAR Convention and is an important habitat for birds, fish and eels.

Kimana Wetlands is a Ramsar site. It is also home to some very unusual plants, such as the cushion plant Donatia which normally grows in sub-alpine areas. Seventy six species of birds have been recorded at the lagoon, including international migratory waders and the waters are a significant trout fishery. Catchment Care is helping to restore this important area by helping with riparian planting and pest plant removal.
