Description

Mangamuka Scenic Reserve consists of a large forested area (2944 ha). It is home to a wide variety of birds and animals, many of which are regionally and nationally threatened. It is an important site for the long-term maintenance of North Island brown kiwi and kkupa (New Zealand pigeon) populations. It is also one of the few sites where the threatened freshwater fish, the short-jawed kokopu, has been recorded. Mangamuka also contains one of the highest quality waterways left in Northland, the Mangamuka stream. The rolling hill slopes covered in towai forest and manuka/kanuka shrubland form part of a remnant forest that links locally to Mangataipa Scenic Reserve and Raetea Forest. As development and deforestation continue to diminish forest habitats like this, pristine areas such as Mangamuka become more and more important for the survival of our native species.
