- Existing site records for the Canterbury region provide a potentially misleading basis for site protection, if used without specialist advice. The majority of sites require verification of location and existence in the field. Some are known to have been destroyed. Others were never positively identified. Site survival rates appear to be poor. There is a lack of comprehensiveness, detail and updating. Known sites on land held or managed by the Department of Conservation and on other protected land appear not to be representative of site types and areas. The contribution of some individuals and the Canterbury Museum to site recording and protection over several decades is acknowledged. Since 1982 additions to the records have been relatively few. The general conclusion is that comprehensive recording programmes are necessary as a basis for site protection, both on land held or managed by the Department of Conservation and on other land.
