Save Our Rivers - West coast (Greymouth, Westport)
Our local group based in the West Coast of the South Island, aims to to protect and safeguard our waterways, for current and future generations. NZ already has too many cows, yet industrial 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 a massive industrial dairy farm. He plans to put 15,000 cows at the Southern end of the picturesque Lake Pūkaki. We urgently need fewer cows. The new Government must take decisive, effective action and ban 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 Damian O’Connnor from the West Coast/ Tasman electorate, and Minister for Agriculture makes the right decision to protect the Mackenzie?
