Tackling Fiordland's rubbish problem
Tue, 06 Nov 2012 7:00p.m.
Fiordland is one of the most stunning parts of New Zealand. It's a world heritage area of pure and remote wilderness
But sadly it is not untouched by humankind. Believe it or not, this long coastline has a rubbish problem.
Recently a small group of Southlanders decided to clean up the most inaccessible coast in the country.
And Tsehai Tiffin reports, they took out 50 tonnes of waste in just a few days.
Watch the video to see her report.

Good work guys! This used to happen evey year, so good to see you looking after that beautiful part of NZ.Would it not be viable to get together with sustainable coastlines and get this happening all around NZ, and if so who do we make contact with to volunteer??

I cringe every time I hear that sick "Clean green NZ". Per head of[population we are the filthiest place on the planet.
