Wellingtonians gathered at Oriental Bay this morning to literally put their heads in the sand, as a visual response to the Government’s inaction on climate change and to its ongoing threats to the New Zealand environment from mining.

Similar actions took place at beaches across New Zealand.

The actions were timed to coincide with the UN’s climate talks in Lima.
