Healthy waterways and sustainable moss swamps in NZ

The New Zealand Ministry for the Environment (MfE)  is consulting on Actions to protect the country’s waterways and wetlands.  We pride ourselves on the sustainable management of wetlands on the WestCoast as they are the foundation to our Sphagnum moss business.

Unfortunately the country-wide proposals to protect wetlands and freshwater (which we support) have overlooked the West Coast sphagnum moss swamps and if implemented have the potential to restrict or make too costly the continued harvesting of moss from those swamps.

If you want to support our efforts to convince MfE to support our current practices which sustain these moss swamps for the benefit of our business and wider community please feel free to download this general submission, sign, date and email in to consultation.feshwater@mfe.govt.nz by 31st October (this Thursday NZST)
