New Zealand Rainforest

The New Zealand rainforests are home to a wide range of unique plants and birds.

About 10–15% of the total land area of Aotearoa is covered with native flora, from tall kauri and kohekohe forests to rainforest dominated by rimu, beech, tawa, matai and rata; ferns and flax; dunelands with their spinifex and pingao; alpine and subalpine herb fields; and scrub and tussock.
