1080 in the Waitakere Ranges: What they are not telling you!

Did you know that the Auckland Council is carrying out ‘pest control’ in the Waitakere Ranges, situated west of Auckland? We have first hand evidence of dead possums, dead birds and others scattered throughout.

Using “Kauri Dieback” as the reason why the ranges were recently closed, the Auckland Council, as well as installing numerous amounts of “STOP” signs to prevent access, have also installed “Caution” signs regarding pest control. And in knowing the indiscriminate way that the New Zealand Government over the past 50 years have saught to poison the environment and its people, mammalian inhabitants of all descriptions and basically any “oxygen-breathing” animal, insect or otherwise, it is a question that is worth asking!


Although they may have different spectral (coloured) backgrounds, there appears to be a very close resemblance between the Phytophthora Cinnamomi, on the left, Phytophthora agathidicida, pictured on the right. Can you see any difference? One would question, why are they labelled as varieties of the same species? Wouldn’t it be accurate to assume that they are indeed one and the same?

These mould spores, that are water-borne and are absorbed by the Jurassic-aged Kauri, are causing root rot. After having survived for millions of years, it is only just now that these ancient trees are dying back. This would suggest an intentional agenda that is man-made rather than coincidental.

Kauri’s are enormous trees that often span many metres in circumference. To remove a living Kauri, with roots intact, by machines or by way of logging processes, is very expensive and therefore inhibits development of these areas.

With no animals, and with a lack of ancient (and expensive to remove) trees, developments can proceed without hindrance.

It is times like this that makes me question humanity and it’s own ability to kill everything that it believes “belongs” to it.

The genus name Phytophthora comes from the Greek φυτό– (phyto), meaning “plant”, plus the Greek φθορά (phthora), meaning “decay, ruin, perish”. The species name agathidicida means “kauri killer”, from the genitive noun agathid– (meaning “of the kauri genus Agathis“) and the Latin suffix –cide (from the verb cadere, to kill), similar to the words “homicide” and “genocide”. – Wikipedia
