Motutapu Island
Auckland, New Zealand


In autumn 2011, the “Duck Pond” on Motutapu Island was fenced off preventing livestock access. The dam was in a highly degraded state with poor water quality. The dam is located within the West Point catchment which contains a small stream that has proven to be the second most productive in terms of freshwater fish diversity and abundance on the island. As a consequence, the margins of the dam will be planted out and the stream has recently been fenced off (December 2011) with the hope of restoring this freshwater ecosystem and improving the water quality that flows in to the Hauraki Gulf Maritime Park.
