Please Help Us

We are a core group of volunteers running Protect Wanaka to hold QLDC and Council to account, as well as taking them to court. There are plenty of ways you can help.

Help fund our legal battle – please donate today

We’re taking QLDC and QAC to court to stop them moving forward with plans for a jet capable airport in Wanaka. The High Court will determine whether the lease of Wanaka Airport is unlawful (because of lack of consultation with the community). We an experienced and senior legal team, many of whom are working for us pro-bono. But there are direct legal costs (such as court fees, support specialists, travel etc). So any financial contribution you can make will be greatly appreciated.
