Let's make the Tarawera swimmable again.
The Green Party have launched a campaign to fight for rivers that are clean enough to swim in, not just wade through. We’ve chosen ten rivers from around the country to visit, and highlight what needs to happen to make all our rivers clean enough to swim in again.
Our MP Catherine Delahunty has already visited the Ruamāhanga, Selwyn/Waikirikiri and Waitara rivers. One of her next stops is the Tarawera River.
Catherine is hosting a public meeting in Kawerau to talk about national solutions desperately needed to help the local efforts to save the Tarawera. Please join Catherine and local guests who’ve been working hard to save the Tarawera.
New Zealand’s rivers can be clean enough to swim in, but only if the government lift its standards. Tangata whenua, communities, industry and farmers can’t clean rivers on their own. They need the Government to help.
