Iconic high country land will be better managed under changes that Land Information Minister Eugenie Sage announced consultation on today.

Tenure review is a voluntary process where Crown pastoral land can be sold to a leaseholder and areas with high ecological and recreational value can be returned to full Crown ownership as conservation land.

“Tenure review has seen some land protected but also large swathes, 353,000 ha, have been privatised and large areas intensively farmed or subdivided,” Eugenie Sage said.

We must stop cruelty in the name of ‘entertainment.’ 

The Green Party's rodeo animals protection bill would amend the Animal Welfare Act to outlaw the rodeo activities that cause the most pain and distress to animals - specifically calf roping, steer wrestling and the use of flank straps.

New Zealand law acknowledges animals as sentient and it’s unacceptable in 2019 to have animals hurt, scarred and killed for fun. How we treat our animals is a reflection on our values as a society.
