New Zealand is currently preparing to establish a network of marine protected areas based on our existing marine reserves and 'other' types of protection or partial protection established under the Fisheries Act. There will be some very important processes we will go through to achieve the lofty goal of protecting marine biodiversity and ecosystems for the future. These resources have been collected to assist in this process.

Author(s): Roger Grace

In New Zealand, when we talk of no-take zones in the sea we really mean
marine reserves, set up under the Marine Reserves Act 1971. Although there
are a few other ways of achieving full protection, the Marine Reserves Act is
the specific piece of legislation designed for this purpose. It does have some
short-comings, however, and to correct some of these a new Marine Reserves
Bill has been prepared, but has been languishing in the storage cupboards of
Parliament with no action for more than ten years.

Author(s): John Booth

No question about it. A highlight of any tiki-tour of New Zealand is when you get to rub limbs with one of our giant kauri, protected
forever in its natural state within a forest remnant. Even we locals – who tend to take for granted this legacy – have our awe rekindled
whenever we get to re-acquaint ourselves with one of these great spirits that link us with some remote past.
Certain individuals had the foresight – at a time that most bush was being bowled or burnt – to reserve areas, millions of years in the
making, in their natural state. Kiwis and others would always be able to see what the forested landscape once looked like. To mill any
today would be the last thing on your mind.
Strange, isn’t it? We’re keen to hold on to representative examples of original native land cover – yet are so reluctant to do anything
similar for the sea. There are no places fully protected from fishing north of the Poor Knights Islands, right around the top and down
to Taranaki. There is not a single possie easily accessed where you take your mokos to see a fully intact, functioning marine ecosystem.
Decades of overfishing of certain key species (especially snapper and crayfish) have put the kybosh on close to two-thirds of the kelp
forests of the Bay of Islands. Instead of teeming life associated with great seaweed forests, we find instead ghostly pale rock surfaces.
