Dr ATHOL STEWARD AND SON’S MARATHON 26KM OPEN OCEAN SWIM

ADVENTURE ‘MAKING WAVES’

A HUGE OPEN CAST SEABED MINE IN THE SOUTH TARANAKI BIGHT

IS NOT OK!

The legal battle to protect our ocean continues… We’re ahead, lets keep it that way.

Now we need to defend our High Court victory

Good people of New Zealand, we need your support to stop this

Support the marathon swim adventure,’MAKING WAVES’ an awareness and fund raising campaign to protect the ocean. Use this opportunity as a ‘call to

action’ for the Government to endorse a Moratorium on seabed mining to

protect our spectacularly abundant and diverse marine ecology in the Bight - endangered Blue whales, Maui’s dolphin, Blue penguin and over 100 species of marine animal and plant life on nearby reefs

SOME THINGS ARE WORTH MAKING WAVES FOR

In August 2018, the NZ High Court revoked seabed miners TTR Ltd’s consent to start an experimental seabed mining operation in the South Taranaki Bight after a challenge by Kiwi’s Against Seabed Mining, Green Peace, Conservation, Maori and Fishery groups

In September 2018 TTR announced they would challenge the decision in the Appeal Court. At the same time, KASM, Green Peace, Maori Iwi and co will cross appeal the High Courts decision to strengthen the case against seabed mining

Help raise $100k towards legal costs to stop the threat of seabed mining in NZ once and for all.
