Damn the Dam: Save the Mokihinui

There is also more information on the Forest and Bird website -http://www.forestandbird.org.nz/what-we-do/campaigns/save-mokihinui-damn-dam
At the mouth of this deeply incised granite gorge, Meridian Energy has proposed a vast hydro scheme –an 85 metre high dam that would radically changing this spectacular gorge. Recently this state-owned enterprise was given resource consent to go ahead with this proposal.
Forest & Bird, along with DOC and other NGOs have started the expensive and time-consuming task of appealing this decision. The hearing is not until early 2012, but with sufficient public pressure there is a chance we can stop it before it goes to the courtroom! Help us by becoming an activist.

 For more information on our appeal see here.
