New Zealand Govt. takes stringent measures to protect the environment

Published on : Monday, March 27, 2017

New Zealand GovtLast month, 53 elderly American tourists had to stay in a conventional Maori meeting house as US-Auckland flight was delayed and good city hotels were full. Visitors were served biscuits with a cup of tea before they were allotted the rooms. The rooms had mattresses on the floor along with wood carvings on the wall.

 
To quote Jenny Nuku, treasurer of the Maori community center, ‘’ we were joking with them that it was a bit like being young again at an American holiday camp. They all were laughing.’’

 
It provided unique cultural experiences to the tourists. 2016 witnessed 3.5 million short-term arrivals and 480,000 more than had been projected only two years earlier – a deficiency of capacity may end up damaging the biggest foreign exchange earner of the country. Famous volcanic plateaus and snow covered alpine valleys are slow becoming overcrowded. One the other hand, adventure activities in small towns are find their drainage system congested.

 
To quote Quinton Hall, chief executive officer of Ngai Tahu Tourism, one of the country’s biggest adventure tourism operators, ‘’ If we don’t fix these things and look to the long term, we’ll be putting a cap on our own growth. We’ve got a natural cap on our peak period right now because we just don’t have the accommodation in New Zealand. Even if they wanted to come, they couldn’t find anywhere to sleep.”
