New Zealand invests in preserving stunning marine landscapes

New Zealand is set to establish five new marine reserves, aimed at preserving the outstanding natural beauty of its inland and coastal marine habitats. A destination renowned for its stunning beauty and awe-inspiring landscapes, New Zealand’s varied coastline and expansive lakes help to draw tourists from all over the world. New Zealand’s conservation minister Dr Nick Smith approved the move, which formally protects five areas on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island. The region already boasts three national parks and one protected World Heritage Area, and is set to become a haven for tourists seeking the great outdoors. Commenting on the proposals, Dr Smith said, “we are a nation with some of the most spectacular and unique coastlines in the world and we need to recognise the importance and value of not only our special places on land, but our marine habitats as well.” Tourism plays a significant role in the economy of New Zealand, contributing around 10 per cent of its overall GDP and employing a similar proportion of its workforce. Much of its appeal to international tourists is based on its reputation for stunning scenery and well-preserved natural habitats. The move to further preserve the marine environments that are so fundamental to New Zealand’s reputation as a first class destination for adventure tourism and backpacking, can only be a good thing for New Zealand’s tourism industry.
