Spanning a vast and varied body of land, the Ruapehu region is an extremely important piece of New Zealand's wider conservation puzzle.

With two major National Parks including the culturally and spiritually important Whanganui National Park, and the Tongariro National Park World Heritage site, the Ruapehu region plays an integral role in New Zealand's wider conservation efforts.

From deserts to alpine peaks, lush ravines to lowland pasture, through rivers, lakes and wetlands, the Ruapehu region's flora and fauna are as much diverse as they are precious. In conjunction with the Department of Conservation (DOC), volunteers and local community groups work tirelessly in the region, taking measures to ensure the survival and proliferation of many native and endangered species.

You can check out the Department of Conservation's website for more information on the great work they do in our region.
