All this abuse towards farmers for fertilizing their paddocks yet things like this still happen. (Obviously some farms still dump effluent into the river which needs to change but it’s not logical to expect one industry to change its practices but not expect everyone else to think about water pollution too) Mangroves are the last part of the rivers before the ocean.

Too much of the natural environment is at risk of damage due to loose planning.

Ecosystems are complex and interconnected, so until land erosion issues are resolved, nature needs us to retain the mangroves.

Mangroves are essential in the marine environment and they sift out land originated pollutants and are a breeding ground/nursery for fish.

An activity that insists on bypassing the RMA is usually a bad idea.

It's the right thing to do. Coastal Wetlands protect the coastline from erosion and are important breeding geoubds and nurseries for fish and waterfowl.

Already have legislation. Dont need this Council bill allowing mangrove removal. Seems little checks and balances to protect this species and the fish life drawing food from them.
