A petition calling on the government to stop the practise of deep sea oil mining, was handed to the Prime Minister on the steps of parliament.

Jacinda Adern addressed the crowd, asking New Zealanders to give the government time work on a resolution.

Greenpeace campaigner Kate Simcock says there are risks posed to wildlife and the environment as a result of the practice.

Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull and New Zealander of the year Taika Waititi were among those signing the  petition.
