New Zealand’s Forest Parks were created for all of us, for future generations, and for the environment. But this could change. Right now, the Minister of Conservation is going all the way to the Supreme Court to challenge the laws that protect New Zealand’s conservation land. She is doing this alongside a company who want to build New Zealand’s biggest-ever irrigation dam - the Ruataniwha, which will flood part of Ruahine. 22 hectares of forest park will be destroyed so a group of businesses can make more money. If Maggie Barry MP succeeds in court, it could create a legal precedent that lets over a million hectares of conservation land in New Zealand be traded away and destroyed by business interests. New Zealand’s conservation land belongs to all of us. It belongs to nature. And Forest & Bird is here to defend it. Kimberley
