Native dracophylum in the Tuku Nature Reserve.

The Tuku Nature Reserve is the only nature reserve on the 'main' Chatham Island. The 1,239 hectare area has a diversity of habitats and is a key site for conservation of Chatham Island' endemic ecosystems, flora and fauna such as the endangered Taiko. Most of the reserve is covered in forest dominated by Dracophyllum, Kopi, karamu, hoho, matipo and tree ferns.
