On Wednesday 10 May 2023, The Seabed Mining Prohibition Amendment Bill was voted down at first reading by the government failing the tens of thousands who have opposed the destructive industry entering Aotearoa, New Zealand waters. The draft bill, introduced by Te Pāti Māori's Debbie Ngarewa-Packer, was aimed at banning seabed mining for minerals.
Seabed mining poses a major threat to marine life including Popoto/Māui Dolphin... The iron sands off the west coast of the North Island and other minerals elsewhere in the waters of Aotearoa exist and make up unique marine habitats supporting broad diversity of marine life that keep our oceans functioning and healthy.
Our guest speaker is Phil McCabe. Phil will explain:

  • The government's move to appoint a select committee inquiry into seabed mining and why it is disappointing, given the wealth of experience it’s had over three failed seabed mining applications and three court cases.

  • An update on the TTR seabed mining application process through the EPA.

  • What individuals can do to stop seabed mining.

  • The effects of mining on ocean life and the environment
