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.


We have a ‘new look’ Newsletter.

Much more user friendly. See the June Issue here.
