Surveying an ecological district

Surveying an ecological district

Mike Clare of the Department of Conservation’s Protected Natural Areas unit measures out a fenceline in the Hawkdun Range, Otago. In the early 1990s the Hawkdun ecological district was surveyed as part of the Protected Natural Areas Programme. This initiative mapped all of New Zealand’s ecological districts, made an inventory of landforms, plants and animals, and recommended new protected areas.
