Did you know?
Hauturu is one of the few remaining sites where both species of native bat (short- and long-tailed) are present - most important for the parasitic pua o te reinga (“the flower of the underworld”), also known as the wood rose, Dactylanthus taylorii, as it is pollinated by the short-tailed bat. Hauturu is the only site in the Auckland region for Dactylanthus and for two other nationally threatened plants, the giant–flowered broom (Carmichaelia williamsii ) and the red mistletoe (Peraxilla tetrapetala ).
