In this special Election 2020 episode of The Wild Podcast, we asked the five political parties that are currently sitting in parliament - Labour, National, The Green Party, ACT, and NZ First - the same five questions so we could get an idea of who they are, what they stand for, and why we should vote for them or not.
The only party that didn't respond is NZ First so they aren't included in the episode.
The party spokespeople are:
ACT - Nicole McKee (#3 on the party list)
National - Jacqui Dean (opposition spokesperson for Conservation and on the Environment Select Committee)
Labour - Rachel Boyack (Nelson candidate)
The Green Party - Chlöe Swarbrick (current MP)
The questions are focussed on conservation, the environment and the outdoors - the stuff our listeners are typically most interested in.
The five questions we asked are: 1. Tell me about the best outdoors experience you've had in New Zealand. 2. What is New Zealand doing really well regarding conservation and the environment. 3. What do you see as the biggest issues facing conservation and the environment right now? 4. What do you see as the biggest opportunities? 5. Why should an outdoors enthusiast vote for you?
Dabbling in politics is a bit outside our wheelhouse but we think it's important to know how our vote might influence New Zealand's environment, the places we love to explore, and the future of our wild places and the flora and fauna that inhabit them.
For our international listeners, this episode won't be particularly interesting or useful. But for our New Zealand listeners, we hope this helps to provide a better understanding of where the main parties stand on conservation and the environment.
If you like what we do, please consider supporting the podcast on Patreon.
We've set it up so you can choose from:
1. The cost of staying in a backcountry hut in New Zealand
2. The cost of staying in a serviced hut
We thought that was cool because our goal with every episode is to transport you from wherever you are into the outdoors.
Your support helps us to cover our costs and keep bringing you stories of explorers, adventure, and the great outdoors.
You can also support the show by leaving a five-star rating and/or a short review on iTunes.
Thanks heaps,
