Nature sustains us and is the basis of all life.
In Government the Greens have led the way in making sure our precious plants and animals are protected, and our wild places are looked after for future generations.
We've achieved a huge amount
Our increased support for the Department of Conservation has led to the biggest funding increase in decades, meaning more rangers can do more work to protect nature for all of us.
Plastics are being phased out to prevent pollution of our oceans.
Major water reforms are underway to end the destruction of freshwater habitats through pollution and over-use of water.
Our no new mines policy has protected conservation land from the effects of mining, such as pollution and the destruction of unique plants and animals.
A huge new area of land has been added to the Kahurangi National Park.
And we need to go further and faster
We believe that government must do more, and faster, to protect nature and make sure our grandkids inherit a thriving beautiful natural environment.
Protection for seabirds, dolphins and other ocean animals is critical and we need to see more action on this.
There's a huge amount to do and we will be announcing new policy and big, bold ideas as part of the general election in 2020.
