A recent government announcement would allow ‘additional consenting pathways’ in some of New Zealand’s precious wetland areas.

This development, especially the potential consenting of coal mines in wetland areas, would massively endanger the country’s eco-systems and carbon sequestration.

Casper had a chat with Tom Kay, the freshwater advocate at Forest and Bird about the government’s announcement, why wetlands are so precious and how they will be impacted.
