NZ’s declining waterways hamper tourism

Published on : Friday, February 24, 2017

Tourism-New-ZealandThe Tourism Export Council has recently declared the cleanup process of New Zealand’s waterways as utter failure.  Council chief executive Lesley Immink described the attempt of making 90 percent of these waterways swimmable by 2040 as smokescreen, keeping in disguise the real intentions as more and more these waterways are showing their steady decline in water quality. She also pointed out that this would hamper the reputation of this country which is mainly known to world for its clean and green environment.

To quote Lesley, ‘’ without a sense of urgency pollution of our waterways will continue to worsen for the foreseeable future – something the tourism industry cannot afford. We have to be seen to be doing all we can to live up to the 100% Pure New Zealand promise”.

She said that though tourism authorities showcased New Zealand’s pristine beauty to the world, overseas travelers are intelligent enough to decipher its worsening pollution issues of the recent times. To quote Leslies, ‘’ today’s visitors are environmentally aware and clean water is an essential aspect for New Zealand’s tourism and primary exports future. Self drive visitors around the country are noticing all these “toxic” signs and the small waterways that look horrible”.
