A message to Anadarko from New Zealand

Video | February 21, 2013

In February 2013 we sailed through the Cook Strait on the Rainbow Warrior, very close to  where Texan oil company Anadarko wants to carry out high risk deep sea oil drilling in the Pegasus Basin.

We had just been to the Auckland Islands to draw attention to the best of what is at stake if we allow deep sea oil drilling to proceed. But as we sailed towards Wellington we were met by an enormous pod of dolphins and they reminded us that all around NZ we have an astonishingly rich ecology that is too precious to risk.

So right there, on the bridge of the Rainbow Warrior, we made a pledge to resist, with every peaceful means available to us, the threat of deep sea oil. And we called Anadarko in Texas to tell them exactly that.

Together we can Stop Deep Sea Oil.
