They are our national monuments. They are our Tower of London, our Arc de Triomphe, our pyramids… No one else has kiwi, no one else has kakapo… And once they are gone, they are gone forever. And it’s up to us to make sure they never die out.
— Don Merton
It’s in our nature to tramp beside a braided river, through a native forest or along a clean beach. It’s not in our nature to let fossil fuel prospecting, intensive land development, and offshore drilling put that at risk.
It’s our job to stop this. Make a stand.
