Cast ‘Vote for Nature’
Nature and the great outdoors are important to New Zealanders and with the general election fast drawing to a close, we really need a government that emphasises nature and climate action.
Our native ecosystems on land, in fresh water and in the oceans face many threats and require continuing efforts at restoration — healthy bush and high country filled with birds and insects; freshwater fish not under threat of extinction; our oceans with flourishing fish populations and other things such as vibrant kelp forests.
Regardless of who forms the next Government they will spend billions on the
Covid-19 recovery. This election is critical for ensuring our recovery has nature at its heart.
