Ngā Manu Nature Reserve

Ngā Manu has been managed by the charitable, non-profit Ngā Manu Trust since 1974 and opened to the public in 1981. The objectives of the trust are education, conservation and preservation of New Zealand native flora and fauna.

Ngā Manu provides a safe, accessible and welcoming place where people can connect with the natural world and are inspired to commit to working together to protect it for future generations

The 14 hectare reserve preserves one of the largest remnants of coastal lowland swamp forest on the Kāpiti Coast and provides a haven for native birds and reptiles.
