Greenpeace New Zealand marked World Oceans Day (8 June)

by hanging a large banner across the front of the Wellington Railway Station during the morning commuter rush with a message to the Government: ‘Time is Running Out - Stop Deep-Sea Destruction’. Commuters walked past sculptures of tree-like corals and weird and wonderful deep-sea creatures. Greenpeace has been exposing the destruction of bottom trawlers (including New Zealand vessels) in international waters. They have reiterated that ‘urgent action’ is needed to protect the deep-sea life that scientists say are being pushed to extinction before they are even named.
