The New Zealand Centre for Political Research (NZCPR) has launched a campaign to have the foreshore and seabed returned to public ownership. This would mean repealing the Act, but acknowledge this will not happen without a tsunami of public concern. You can read more about this campaign in a recent NZCPR article ‘Return the Coast to Public Ownership’.

Supporters of the proposal to repeal the law and restore public ownership of the coast are urged to take the following actions:
- Email or write a letter to MPs, including the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, and Winston Peters.
- Help to raise awareness by telling others what's going on, including writing letters to newspapers, calling talkback radio, and sharing information on social media.
- Volunteer to deliver ‘Return the Coast to Public Ownership’ flyers. A copy can be downloaded and printed (either in colour or black & white). The download link is HERE.
(Please contact the campaign co-ordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your delivery area).
