Protecting New Zealand's Beaches from Oil Drilling

I recently had a chance to visit some of the best New Zealand beaches and it really drove home to me how important it is that we don't let different elements of the environmental battle become separated from each other. The mindset of extractivism, the plunder of our local resources, and the imminent danger of an oil spill for the wildlife of our beaches and oceans are all interconnected. We must coordinate together between different action groups to make sure we stay on track and protect what is most precious, making sure oil remains in the ground and under the sea at the same time.
