Protecting kauri and other ecology in Le Roys Bush
Le Roys Bush has a number of kauri in various parts of the reserve.
Council and volunteers are trying hard to protect from kauri dieback disease.
Help us protect the kauri, the streams and the bush by:
keeping to the track at all times
keeping dogs and other pets on a leash at all times (they can destroy fish and gecko habitats if they go off track)
keeping out of any closed tracks (as at 2022, the Le Roy Terrace track is still closed to all people)
You can read more about kauri protection and track closures on the page pestfreekaipatiki.org.nz/kauridieback
and about track closures on pestfreekaipatiki.org.nz/explorer
