WE are glad to see that the New Zealand Government is actively continuing the work of preserving the natural scenery of the dominion to which we directed attention last year. Some interesting particulars are given in the Report on Scenery Preservation for the year 1907–8 lately issued by the Department of Lands, from which it is evident that the authorities fully appreciate the value of the remarkable natural attractions for which the Dominion is so justly famous. During the year under review an addition of more than 8000 acres was made to the area reserved under the Scenery Preservation and Public Works Acts. This area now reaches a total of about 34,000 acres, exclusive of 100,000 acres of Crown land similarly reserved under the Land Act.
