Braided rivers, such as the Dart and Rees, are unique and complex ecosystems that are rare in other parts of the world. The South Island has many wonderful examples. Most New Zealanders and international visitors are unaware of how special they are. These river systems themselves also need protection, as well as the wildlife that use them as a habitat.
BRAID is a braided river conservation and management network that is a tremendous resource. Please visit their website (braid.org.nz) for more information.
