Mā te oranga o te taiao, ka ora ai te iwi.

We should all be able to enjoy Aotearoa’s precious nature – to hear the dawn chorus in our forests, and see wildlife thrive in our oceans and rivers.

Previous governments have failed to protect our rivers and oceans against pollution,

or invest enough in nature. The Green Party knows we must protect and respect Papatūānuku. A healthy environment is the basis of our wellbeing and an economy that delivers for people and planet.

In Government, we’ve achieved so much for nature. Now we want to go further and faster to protect our forests, rivers and oceans for future generations.
