This is the latest scientific data analysis since the previous report issued in 2010. In-depth information is provided on Auckland’s natural environment, with the latest monitoring results outlined across four chapters: Climate, Air, Land, and Water. The full report is available on the Auckland Council website.


These report cards give you up-to-date information on the state of Auckland's freshwater, marine, air and terrestrial environments, as well as reporting on the region's capacity for growth, demographics and quality of life.

Auckland Council (and the former councils) has been collecting information about Auckland’s people and environment for more than 30 years.

While we aren’t able to monitor everything, everywhere, our extensive monitoring programmes allow us to build a picture of the state of Auckland – both environmentally and socially.

Auckland Council has more than 1000 environmental monitoring sites around the region, set up to help us track changes in the environment and make improvements where they are needed.
