We’re acknowledging the appointment of the Guardians of the Lakes this week with a peaceful image of Lake Te Anau at dawn.
Lake Te Anau is set against the amazing mountain backdrop of the Fiordland National Park. The lake is used for all kinds of water recreation activities, including boating, fishing and kayaking.
The Guardians of Lakes Manapouri, Monowai and Te Anau report annually to the Government on matters arising from the environmental, ecological and social impacts on the lakes.
