Coasts: monitoring and reporting
Our coasts are national treasures, but they are threatened by loss of natural character and biodiversity, and degraded water and sediment quality.
Waikato Regional Council regularly monitors and reports on our region's coastal resources and how they are changing.
- Our coastal indicators summarise the results of our science and monitoring programmes, and provide a holistic report on the state of the Waikato region's environment.
- We regularly monitor coastal resources at a number of sites throughout the region. We have specific reporting on these sites, see below.
