Is the environmental “flipping” of the Waituna Lagoon off the Awarua Bay inevitable?
Milk tankers fully loaded from dairy farms head to the factory over the hill. Is the future bright for all? I wonder if the cow and farmworker share similar fates? Are both expendable?
‘Dali’s Couch’ by Riverton artist Wayne Hill is in the lagoon.

How many citizens, including scientists, have expressed concerns over the health of the Waituna Lagoon.
