Image by Roger Grace, published on 04/05/2011

Whangateau is a popular place to snorkel and learn about estuarine ecology. Here a bed of necklace weed is attached to a sandstone ledge next to a channel behind Horse Shoe Island. The Whangateau HarbourCare Group is promoting a 50-hectare area as a fish haven for the enjoyment and education of school and community groups.
