West Coast

Fed by an high annual rainfall, the West Coast is blanketed in lush rainforest that is home to a range of native creatures from powelliphanta snails to kaka.

The West coast branch is working to protect this precious environment by advocating for greater pest control and opposing mining operations that threaten to destroy prize conservation land, such as the Denniston plateau.

It has successfully campaigned to protect the Mokihinui River and its surrounding forests from a hydro dam.
