New Zealand First welcomes Auckland Councils vote
NEW ZEALAND FIRST WELCOMES AUCKLAND COUNCIL VOTE
New Zealand First welcomes Auckland Councils vote to close the Waitakere Ranges due to the sprawl of Kauri Dieback.
“The Kauri is an iconic New Zealand native and more has to be done to preserve its existence.” Says New Zealand First spokesperson for Conservation Jenny Marcroft.
New Zealand First, as part of its coalition agreement, wants to increase support for National Science Challenges to counter diseases like kauri dieback and myrtle rust.
“We are all Kaitiaki of our precious taonga, and we support the closure at this critical time.
Closing the ranges is an essential sacrifice that must be made in an effort to ensure the longevity of the Kauri.”
