Description

New Zealand’s reputation as a clean green environment is under threat. We ignore the messages in this book at our peril. This is a book for all New Zealander’s.

No one can read this book without feeling incensed that we have allowed the New Zealand environment to deteriorate to the extent that is revealed here. It is not too late to undo the damage. We must all adopt the kaupapa of kaitiakitanga (guardianship) to preserve what we have and to restore the lakes, whenua, streams, rivers, wetlands and foreshore of New Zealand.

This collection of articles discusses the impact of changes in Aotearoa New Zealand’s natural environment due to factors such as climate change, pollution and degradation of waterways and land, pest control and environmental management policy. It highlights Māori perspectives on these issues and actions that Māori have taken to maintain and restore the environment. These contributions demonstrate that the relationship that Māori have with the environment through kaitiakitanga has sound environmental principles and provide a reminder of obligations for future generations of all New Zealanders.

With local, regional and central government decisions about the environment continuing to be based on a least expensive option rather than on the most sustainable, the book suggests that Māori should take a lead role as active kaitiaki to promote sound principles in the wider community for the benefit of all.
