Precious marine life in every corner of the planet is under threat from industrial activity, so Greenpeace teams across the world are pushing to end harmful practices.

Here in Aotearoa, we’re campaigning to end bottom trawling in the Hauraki Gulf marine park. Bottom trawling is an indiscriminate fishing method that involves dragging large weighted nets across the seafloor, bulldozing ocean life and destroying precious ecosystems. The Hauraki Gulf is home to a treasure trove of marine life, from Byrde’s whales to manta rays and tarakihi to tāiko – but a century of degradation from bottom trawling has put all that life at risk.

To turn things around for the Gulf and to allow this once abundant place to recover, bottom trawling has got to stop. The time for action is now!If you haven’t already, please sign the petition to ban bottom trawling in the Hauraki Gulf:
