The Pencarrow lakes are New Zealand’s last remaining, relatively unmodified wetlands, despite their proximity to a large urban area.

The lakes, wetlands and raised beaches together support regionally-threatened native plants, native fish and wetland birds. It\'s the only area in the Wellington region where banded dotterel nest on the open sand.
