DATASETSignificant Natural Areas - Terrestrial and WetlandThe council identifies significant natural areas (SNA) as areas that meet one or more criteria for significance in the Waikato Regional Policy Statement. Identification of SNA is an important step in managing the region’s natural heritage, protecting threatened species from the risk of extinction, reconnecting fragmented ecosystems, and meeting the requirements of the Resource Management Act 1991. Significant natural areas provide us with a wide range of ecosystem services, including habitat for native plant and animal species, flood or erosion control, providing oxygen, helping to regulate climate, and scenic appeal.Biodiversity Ecology Ecosystems Fauna Flora Native RPS SNA Sand dune Terrestrial WetlandbiotaGet XML
