Save Our Rivers - Wellington
Our local group based in Wellington aims to protect and safeguard our waterways, for current and future generations.
NZ already has too many cows, yet intensive dairy is still expanding - even to places like the unique drylands of the Mackenzie country. Right now, a wealthy accountant from Dunedin has approval to convert a huge area in the Mackenzie to intensive dairy. He plans to put 15,000 cows right next to picturesque Lake Pukaki.
We urgently need fewer cows. The new Government must take decisive, effective action and put a moratorium on new dairy conversions immediately. That’s the only thing that will save the our rivers and save the Mackenzie country.
Will you help us to make sure the Government make the right decision and stop Dairy conversions?
