  • Block the Offer - Continue to say no to deep sea oil drilling
    Oct 2015: The outcome of this campaign was absolutely incredible. Not only is the Christchurch City Council dedicated to blocking the offer and stopping deep sea oil drilling off the Canterbury coastline, they have shown interest in taking further action than only writing a submission. Having a huge backing strongly contributed to the opinions that were voiced at the council meeting, and overall had a massive influence on the Block the Offer campaign!

  • Save Graham's Bush
    2017: The Tree Council has achieved a great result with a partial victory- the damage that will be done to the bush has been minimised! After years of community outrage, an appeal and most recently mediation with Auckland Council, The Tree Council are very impressed with the outcome. Securing a considerable extension to the proposed bridge crossing the gully from 28 to 40m span. This means that the abutments supporting the road bed will now be located at the edges of the gully rather than within it and only a very small number of mature trees will be directly affected. The small gully in South Auckland called Grahams Bush known as is a botanical gem, a real taonga, a fragment of the lowland podocarp-broadleaf forest that once covered the Manukau lowlands has been saved! The Tree Council would like to thank all those who donated money to support their case, fellow appeal parties, the Cheesman family and Auckland Transport for being willing to negotiate a much better ecological outcome for Graham’s Bush. Well done everyone!

  • We want a comprehensive bottle refund scheme for Aotearoa
    April 2022: The government has finally acted and a CRS has been proposed as part of wider recycling reforms and public consultation is happening now. The proposed scheme IS comprehensive as we asked: it includes all materials (glass, plastic, metal, liquid paperboard), and all beverage types. Now the focus of the campaign shifts: we need to make as many submissions to the government's proposal as possible by May 8. This will further encourage the government to implement a comprehensive, equitable, Tiriti-led scheme, that delivers maximum impact to the community and environment. Check out our template submission and have your say!
