Here is a selection of extracts from their letters. Rainforests This letter is about the Amazon rainforest and how they can take away the natives species in the forest. I would like to say that we are losing a lot of Earth's greatest animals. The people that are cutting down the trees should stop now because it is not fair for the people to see the species die away and not to be seen again. I think that people out there that are cutting down the trees now or in the future should stop before the rainforest disappear in life. The rainforests once covered 14 per cent of the earth's land surface but now there is only 6 per cent. Experts estimate that the last remaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years. Cutting down trees will not be good for the rainforest stop now. Shianne Tipene Whales Whales have been tortured. They shouldn't have to endure the pain that is being dished out by the Japanese. There are only 74,000 left in existence. In 50 years if this carries on there will be no more whales, our future generations will not be able to understand what the movie Whale Rider was about. If we leave them alone for a few decades they could repopulate quite fast. But if we don't then whales could end up in our landfill. Tyler Willoughby Kawakawa Water rights I fully believe that John Key should absolutely not sell New Zealand's water rights because when we run out of water, we won't have any other supplies to turn to purely because John Key has sold New Zealand's water. I think that John Key isn't thinking about New Zealand's future, or for many more generations to come. He is just thinking about the present, and not the full consequences that come with the selling of the water rights. I believe John Key has already made up his mind that New Zealand is going to sell, even Three News thinks that. I think the selling of water rights is definitely a sustainability issue for two reasons: Once New Zealand has run out of water that's it there's no more, and then we will have to pay other companies to use it, and that will probably make New Zealand become in debt. I think the selling of the water rights hasn't fully been thought out, and the outcomes and consequences can only be negative in the future. If I could influence John Key, I would tell him not to sell the water rights because I believe nobody owns the water, and that every person has equal share in the water. There is no measure of who owns however much water. In conclusion, the selling of New Zealand's water rights should be fully cancelled. Summer Frost Moerewa Mining Mining is a great way to add to our economy and it should be encouraged. However, mining should be done sustainably and in a way that doesn't harm the environment or our native species. What I fear this government will do is that they, in their mad rush to create jobs, will open up such land like conservation areas to mining with absolutely no regard for the environmental effects or the effects on native wildlife and/or plants. Some of the species in these areas are rare or even undiscovered, and it would be a shame if such species or any others were to be destroyed by irresponsible mining. There is, however, a way to balance the environment and the economy. What should happen is that no area of land should be mined unless the mining company can prove that it can be done sustainably and not damage the environment -- if it is possible. Rankin Kemp-Baker Kawakawa Marmite bonus for Hokianga Heavy weight: When the going gets tough Hokianga steps up to the mark. Marmite marketing came to the Hokianga some time ago but they might have to spread this precious commodity even thinner if they are going to last out the drought. Opononi Dolphin Lodge owner Sue Reyn- ard struck it lucky when she stocked up on the popular spread just a couple of weeks before the Christchurch quake struck, damaging the Marmite factory building and forcing it to close. I happened to be pur- chasing my regular sup- plies and bought a couple of boxes. We still have some left but we're get- ting to the end of it.'' Repairs to the Sani- tarium factory in Christ- church are progressing well but the product is unlikely to hit shelves for a couple of months.
