- Friends of the Taputeranga Marine Reserve

Taputeranga Marine Reserve – Images of the Sea

Our website shows how the Taputeranga Marine Reserve is special and of benefit to the people of Wellington. The Friends were set up to foster understanding and appreciation of the Reserve, assist DOC to monitor and manage, and develop opportunities such as the Island Bay Snorkel Trail.

The Reserve is yours to protect and enjoy.


Taputeranga Marine Reserve is ten years old. It came into being on 26 August 2008.  We will let you know about  events later in the year, but you are invited to help celebrate the birthday on 26 August.

An invitation to the event can be found on our Facebook page. Note the RSVP. All friends and associates of the Marine Reserve are very welcome.
