Not long ago, the government thought our calls to reduce cow numbers to save our rivers was madness.

Now, thanks to tens of thousands of us piling on the pressure, even the government are admitting that cow numbers can't keep growing.

Or as Nathan Guy, Primary Industries Minister, put it:

Granity, and other towns like it, are disappearing into the sea, because of coastal erosion.

"Climate change has thrown fuel on the fire of the existing erosion. Higher seas push the waves closer to the coast, and severe weather events become more frequent"

This is why action in climate change is urgent and necessary.
