New Zealand already has rules and regulations in place in an attempt to minimise pollution from intensive dairy farming degrading the waterways. The local body councils play a major role in the management of the environment and in the Taranaki region, the Taranaki Regional Council (TRC) is the responsible regulatory body. Their website states that:
‘Besides developing, monitoring and enforcing regional rules around the use of core resources, an important part of our work involves getting alongside landowners, industry, community groups and individuals to take practical actions to protect and improve the environment.’(TRC, 2015a)
The TRC manage the resource consent process as outlined in the Resource Consent Act (1991) and undertake the necessary compliance monitoring. They also introduce local initiatives such as the TRC Riparian Protection Programme to improve water quality.
Although the TRC are the regional ‘Gate Keepers’, nationally many parties are interested in environmental management, for example in 2003 a coalition made up of the Ministry for the Environment, Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (now called Ministry of Primary Industries), regional councils and Fonterra developed the Dairying and Clean Streams Accord (Fonterra & Govt, 2003)which is a statement of intent and framework for actions to promote sustainable dairy farming in New Zealand, with a focus on reducing the impacts of dairying on the waterways.

- Living a life in a civilized society has always been referred to as an essential prerequisite of development of the potential of a human being to its fullest. However, it is important to keep in mind that the social environment consists of two kinds of people: leaders and followers. It is impossible to say that some of them are more important than the others, since in the lack of leaders, people do not know what to do, while it is impossible to become a leader in case one does not have any followers....

- For my project, I led a group of fellow students, both from my class and outside of class, to assist the local not-for-profit museum to get ready for its seasonal opening. The idea for this project came from its being mentioned by Dr. McClellan as a choice that in the past has been an extremely cooperative institution with students completing this project. It further appealed to me because of my love of history, and my curiosity as to what it may hold, as I had not heard of this museum, and was surprised that such a small town as Frostburg would have a museum of its own....
