A political leader who has been a staunch environmental advocate for her South Taranaki iwi is taking her fight against seabed mining global.
On Friday, Ngti Ruanui rangatira and Te Pti Mori co-leader Debbie Ngarewa-Packer travelled to Lisbon, Portugal for the United Nations Oceans Conference, in a bid to build an international coalition against deep sea mining.

It follows a movement Ngarewa-Packer helped spearhead in her own rohe, where she and others actively opposed an application made by Trans-Tasman Resources to mine for iron ore off the South Taranaki coast.

It was a battle which was fought in the courtroom, which ultimately resulted in a ruling in favour of Ngti Ruanui, Ng Rauru and environmentalists from the Supreme Court last year.

* Petition launched to see seabed mining banned in Aotearoa
* Both sides claim victory in Supreme Court ruling quashing South Taranaki seabed mining consents
* Reverting places names to te reo Mori origins a 'gateway to stopping racism' - Te Pti Mori co-leader

A press release stated that while at the conference, Ngarewa-Packer would co-host a side-event as a anggota of the Pacific Parliamentarians Alliance on Deep Sea Mining, alongside other leaders.

Ngarewa-Packer was instrumental in leading opposition to a proposal to mine the seabed in the South Taranaki Bight.

Im looking forward to working with activists, parliamentarians and policymakers from around the world to build a global alliance against seabed mining, and convince world leaders of the destruction it will cause to our oceans and climate, she said in the statement.

Ngarewa-Packer confirmed she was not attending the conference as part of the New Zealand delegation, but argued that bold leadership was needed on the issue, which posed a threat to marine life.
