Save the Point England Bird Sanctuary

This campaign has ended.

Save the Point England Bird Sanctuary

Please stop the Point England Development Bill until an independent environmental impact assessment has been completed and presented to the Local Government and Environment Committee with a better development proposal.

Why is this important?

The development at Point England will destroy the primary roosting habitat of the remaining wild shorebirds in the Tāmaki Estuary. The development proposed in this Bill covers 50% of the endangered New Zealand dotterel nesting ground. This intensive housing development will bring cats and dogs and people into the nesting ground, evicting the birds.

Reasons for signing

  • Point England is a beautiful place where I go on a daily basis to unwind after a stressful day. I see people excerising
  • Save our precious wildlife
  • Green spaces; for enjoyment and to provide connection to nature are essential to well-being on communities. I don't see plans to build on Cornwall Park.....I would hate to think the council at targeting low socio-economic communities so they can cash in on the housing boom.
