Preserving Our Unique Kiwi Lifestyle

Preserving Our Unique Kiwi Lifestyle

New Zealand First conservation spokesperson Doug Woolerton has welcomed the opening of four new camping spots on land administered by the Department of Conservation in time for summer.

“New Zealanders enjoy a unique and valued way of life, built on our heritage, our values and our environment. Camping is a traditional summer activity in New Zealand, and it’s important that camping grounds continue to be available for kiwi families to enjoy,” said Mr Woolerton.

“New Zealand First has long advocated the need for ordinary kiwis to have inexpensive access to the country’s popular holiday areas, urging the Government to ensure that private property developers don’t monopolise areas situated in prime coastal areas.

“We are a nation of fishers, sailors, hunters and hikers and proudly so, and the introduction of more campsites for families to enjoy is a very welcome step towards retaining an iconic feature of the unique kiwi lifestyle,” Mr Woolerton said.
