Eagle Rays

Eagle rays bask in the warm, clear shallows of Parengarenga, one of the best preserved harbour systems in New Zealand.

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Almost all of the surrounding land is Māori-owned, in a mix of native vegetation and scrub, some forestry and about half pastoral farming. There are few tributaries and the catchments are relatively small, meaning that water quality is relatively good. This low-intensity farming, with landowners invested in the health of the harbour, presents a model for sustainable development.
