Represents a diverse range of forest, wetland and coastal ecosystems that are now poorly represented in Porirua City, including some that are scarce, threatened or distinctive. Has been fragmented by subdivision in Camborne, but still extensive and enhances connectivity around Pauatahanui Inlet. Significant buffer against sedimentation into Pauatahanui Inlet.

Outcomes Sought?

1.  Protect natural values to achieve healthy ecological functioning through animal and weed pest control as funding opportunities allow, and through natural regeneration.  Improve the waterway and wetland functioning over time, increasing the planted riparian area where possible for erosion reduction and fish spawning habitat.

2. Safeguard ecological linkages, by integrating management of the natural values with that for Bodmin Reserve and Camborne Walkway.
