OPINION: Nitrates from dairy farms have long been suspected of polluting waterways around New Zealand, now they could be "killing" people, according to Greenpeace.
Last week’s publicity stunt saw Greenpeace put up three billboards in Selwyn River, Waikirikiri – Canterbury.
Greenpeace says lakes and rivers once enjoyed by Kiwi families have become too polluted for our kids to swim in without fear of getting sick: it wants reduction in synthetic fertiliser use.
Now will be a good time to remind Greenpeace that almost 40 beaches in Auckland were deemed unsafe for swimming late last year due to human waste contamination.
Wonder if any billboards are going up there?
