Wetland Handbook Series

The Wetland Handbook Series published by Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research is a compilation of three handbooks promoting wetland restoration stories throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. These handbooks highlight restoration approaches through showcasing the relationships between people and their wetlands, and the interpersonal relationships among these communities.


Ko te mātauranga he wai nō ruawhetū
Kia mahara koe i te puna inā inu koe i te wai
Ko wai koe?
Ko wai ahau?
Ko wai ahau

Nā Dr Rangi Matamua

Māori knowledge flows from the cosmos
When you drink the water, remember the spring
Who are you?
Who am I?
I am water


Funding for the Wetland Handbook Series was provided by the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment for the Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research Restoring Wetland Ecosystem MBIE Programme and Strategic Science Investment Fund.
