Make a submission against mud farming and for freshwater protection

The government is proposing a suite of changes to the Resource Management Act (RMA), this time to repeal all regulations on mud farming and other essential freshwater protections.

The Bill risks facilitating the expansion of mud farming with fewer checks and balances – meaning we could see more animals living and giving birth in mud.

Removing these protections also threatens to exacerbate freshwater pollution, exposing more Kiwis to contaminated drinking water and endangering species that depend on freshwater habitats.

If you want to make a submission opposing this Bill, you must do it before 11:59PM on 30 June.

Greenpeace is running an online submission party.
