Kaikoura District Council - Block the Offer - Continue to say no to deep sea oil drilling

In 2015 Kaikoura District Council took a strong stance against deep sea oil drilling and requested "the exclusion of the entire proposed off shore Block Offer 2016 release area."

This is our chance to protect Kaikoura coasts and make sure they do the same again. Tell the KDC that we want a clear statement sent to Central Government saying NO to deep sea drilling off our coast, and YES to a thriving and healthy clean energy economy.

Why is this important?

Reasons for signing

  • I visit NZ as a tourist and it is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I hope that you will protect NZ from horrible oil and gas corporations that will ruin your pristine land and water. I know, I saw the Gulf of Mexico damaged beyond repair. All oil companies eventually LEAK. Please do not allow oil companies to ruin the most precious place on earth, NZ. Keep them out. Please, I want to return to NZ and experience more of its natural beauty.
