Save Our Sands, Love Our Oceans

Children of Piha and Karekare talk about the threat of seabed mining off their beach.

The Government has issued exploration licences for seabed mining just off the majority of the North Island's west coast. Companies are about to apply for licences to mine. If this goes ahead, millions of tonnes of black sand will be dug up, destroying the seabed ecology, threatening the endangered maui's dolphin, surf breaks and causing coastal erosion. All for no maximum 5% revenue for NZ, and foreign-owned companies. It's not too late to stop this.

Say No.
