New Zealand’s native bush is being poisoned by the conservation department assigned to protect it. Each year thousands of birds and other wild life including farm animals die horrible agonizing deaths thanks to this department.
Poisoning Paradise is a documentary made by the Graf brothers and this is the documentary the major broadcast networks refused to screen
However - you can watch it live on line for a limited period of time – from now until the 15th of November
Watch it here
What you will see will shock you
Tourists are being shocked by the smell – clean green NZ – yeah right!
they complied their numbers using DoC’s own evidence – documented cases they looked at after 1080 drops –The numbers vary between 3% to 30% per drop and these drops are happening every 2 to 3 years
O’Keefe says ….” you can call this decimation but decimation means killing only one in 10 ….one in 10 would be a good day for the keas, as the evidence shows they are killing 25% of them per drop”
An appraisal of the scientific evidence by the O’Keefe’scan be read here
Morepork our only native owl…..Ross Campbell of Owlcatraz Native Bird and wildlife Park says …..”I’ve seen huge effects – I don’t mean small but HUGE effects – of 1080 upon the moreporks …..before a 1080 drop starts we would get only a few dead owls handed in a year but once a 1080 drop has started we could get up to 16 owls handed in – and so my concern is because the owl takes so long to reproduce we could see the end of the species of these beautiful natives in some areas of our country”
The indiscriminate killing keeps happening with oblivious and ignorant support by Forest and Bird - the Greens and central and regional governments – this is made possible because few people fully comprehend the devastation this is having on our wildlife population.
DoC has been doing this for over 20 years and still the number of possums have risen – thus it is not an effective way but an addictive pattern and a very lucrative business for some.
1080 is a poison the US wants banned because of its danger and yet clean green NZzzzz drops kilos of the stuff throughout its national parks, farmland and native bush without a care or consequence of its deadly killing power
Shame on New Zealand.
Councils that are stopping 1080 drops are Tapuo and the Mayor of Kaikoura is trying to get it stopped in his area.
A disgrace? You bet! - Go here for further details
BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE .........
HAWAII ISLANDS POISONED - INTERESTING COINCIDENCE?
We are all, by now, aware of the 122 tons of Brodifacoum poison that the Department of Conservation dropped across New Zealand's precious Rangitoto and Motutapu islands, claiming to protect wildlife (using a substance that persists in the environment, that kills animals, birds and fish life, by causing them to bleed to death, through internal hemorrhaging, over a period of up to 2 weeks.) Inhumane? You bet!
Our new documentary Poisoning Paradise, includes pages of native birds (released under the Official Information Act) that have been killed by this poison, in DoC aerial operations on offshore islands - these birds include Kiwi, Takahe, Robins, Ruru, Kaka, Kakariki, and many more.
A disgrace? You bet!
But the most interesting part of this story is the information that is now coming through from Hawaii.
Their Department of Land and Natural Resource (a very similar name to our own bureaucracy - DoC) dropped Rat poison, similar to the one used on our islands, across their Ni'ihau, Lehua, Lihue, & Kauai island's. Coincidentally, their islands suffered massive fish poisonings following the drops. Check out these links...
A couple of sentences from the reports..."Ni'ihau residents still are not eating fish months after thousands of dead fish washed ashore. The dead fish appeared in mid-January shortly after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service dumped rat poison on nearby Lehua island on behalf of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources."
Ring any bells???
Resident Keith Robinson stated that there are reportedly about a dozen Monk Seals who used to regularly visit the island and have recently "gone missing" while others appear "extremely sick."
Ring any bells???
Bruce Robinson says..."It's kind of strange that this is the first time this has happened in a century."
Ring any bells???
Robinson goes on to say..."There appears to be some information that others have sampled that they did find residue at very low level, which makes you wonder. It doesn't necessarily mean the smoking gun."
As "authorities" test samples, community members continue to speculate on the cause of a massive fish kill reported earlier this month on Ni'ihau and the death days later of a young humpback whale on Kaua'i.
Some residents suspect a recent federally administered rodenticide application on the uninhabited island of Lehua may be linked to the dead fish that have washed ashore there and on the nearby Forbidden Island.
Dr Thierry Work, with the National Wildlife Health Centre, found that there were "no visible lesions" and "no evidence of external or internal bleeding."
Checkout the TV3 interview again, above.
And so we are left with the suspicion that 'algal blooms' appear anywhere government departments aerially apply lethal poisons across offshore land masses - apparently killing all sorts of wildlife...including "sea slugs". Wow folks, they really do take us for a bunch of idiots!
As Einstein once said ......"Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth!"
and one more from an infamous character...
"How fortunate it is for the Government, that the people don't think!"
That was Hitler, by the way.
