Significant natural areas

Significant natural areas in the Waikato Region

The Waikato region still contains numerous natural areas that provide habitats for native plant and animal species, and provide ecosystem services to the region. Some of these natural areas contain threatened species or rare types of habitat that make them more important relative to other natural areas without these features. These areas are called significant natural areas (SNAs) and often occur on private land.
