New Zealand National Parks
New Zealand National Parks are protectorates managed by the Department of Conservation. Even though the national parks are home to some of New Zealand's most scenic areas, the first parks to be created all concentrated on the uplands. Ever since the eighties, the emphasis has been on the development of a more varied depiction of New Zealand landscape.
1 ] The parks are all of great importance and many also contain historical characteristics. Tongariro National Park is one of the World Heritage sites of both culture and nature, while four of the South Island National Parks are Te Wahipounamu, another World Heritage Site. Currently there are 13 national parks; a botanical park, the Te Urewera National Park, was closed in 2014.
A National Parks Act of 1980 was created to consolidate the purposes, management and choice of national parks. This begins with the determination of the national park definition: Hereby it is stated that the terms of this Act are effective for the purposes of permanent conservation as national parks, for their inherent value and for the good, use and enjoyment of the general public, areas of New Zealand containing landscapes of such unmistakable qualities, ecosystems or characteristics of nature which are so beauty, uniqueness or scientific importance that their conservation is in the national interest.
National Park Law further states that the general public will have free admission and admittance to the parks, although this is restricted to guarantee the maintenance of indigenous flora and fauna and the general well-being of the parks. According to the law, national parks should be preserved as far as possible in their original state in order to maintain their value as protected areas for land, waters and forests.
This law allows the Ministry of Nature Conservation to make available shelters, cottages, campsites, lifts and similar installations, car parks, roads and paths within the parks. Furthermore, the division also offers some lodging, transportation and other service at the entrance points of the parks, which are also provided by other governments, volunteer organizations and privately owned companies.
Larger range of park activities, such as organised hikes and ski schoolorials, are offered on a private basis with departmental licences.
