Greenpeace calls for a halt to dairy expansion.Locations:Aotearoa-Oceania-Tahorakuri Forest-TaupoDate:8 Apr, 2008Credit:© Greenpeace / Dmitry SharomovMaximum size:3010px X 2340pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Climate change-Dairy farming-Dairy farms-Day-Deforestation-Forestry-Forests (campaign title)-Greenpeace activists-Greenpeace volunteers-KWCI (GPI)-Outdoors-Planting-Reforestation-Shovels-Trees-Two peopleShoot:Reforestation on Landcorp Land in New ZealandGreenpeace volunteers replant over 1000 trees as part of a reforestation activity on land cleared by Landcorp, a New Zealand government owned company. Landcorp is converting Tahorakuri Forest into large-scale intensive dairy farms. Agriculture accounts for 49 per cent of New Zealand’s total greenhouse gas emissions. These emissions are set to climb further. The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) estimate that 455,000 hectares of forestry land is at risk of being deforested and converted into pastoral use – the majority for dairying. Greenpeace is calling on the NZ government to bring the agricultural industry into the Emissions Trading Scheme within the next two years, take regulatory action to halt dairy expansion, and adopt a 30 per cent emissions reduction target for 2020.
