Te tiaki i ngā taonga o te taiao (2 o 3)

Te tiaki i ngā taonga o te taiao

Ko te kaipupuri whenua kei a ia te whānui o ngā whenua ko Te Papa Atawhai. Ko ōna whenua ko ngā rohe tāpui ā-iwi, ko ngā ngahere ā-rohe me ngā wāhi rāhui. He maha ngā hōtaka o tēnei manatū e pā ana ki te tiakitanga o ngā āhuatanga maha o te taiao. Ka taka mai ki raro i ōna manaakitanga ko ngā tūmomo tiakitanga o te taiao. Ko ia anō te kaitiaki o ngā ngahere me ngā tipu māori. Kei a ia anō te kawenga ki te tiaki i ngā manu, ngā kararehe, ngā ngārara e tata wharengaro ana. Kei te whakarongo ngā tamariki ki tētahi tari o te manatū ki te pokapū whakatau manuhiri ki te Rohe Tāpui ā-rohe o Tongariro.
