Hollywood Director Hits Out at NZ Meat, Dairy Industries

17 June 2019

NEW ZEALAND - James Cameron says New Zealand "isn't living up to its own image of itself" because of the country's meat and dairy industries, which he claims damage the environment.

The Oscar-winning director owns more than 1500 hectares of rural Wairarapa land, where he's living with his wife while shooting the next films in his Avatar franchise.

While he describes himself as a "wannabe Kiwi", Cameron sees a lot of environmental problems with New Zealand's economy.

"What we see is that the rivers and the lakes are extremely polluted here," he told TVNZ.

"New Zealand isn't living up to its own image of itself right now, and the image that it projects to the world as the clean, green place.

"So there's a lot of work to do here to steward the land properly."

He says New Zealand's agricultural industry is to blame.
