Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Makara Guardians Inc. is an incorporated society formed in 1997 to coordinate opposition to proposals to build wind turbines near where the members live. Makara is a rural locality 10 km west of Wellington, New Zealand. The Makara Guardians represents some 85% of the families in the Makara Valley, and consists of around 160 members. Membership is restricted to residents or owners of land in Makara who support the objectives of the Society and who are aged over 18. The Makara area has long been favoured as a site for building a wind farm. It is located in an area that enjoys reliably high average wind speeds for much of the year. It is close to a major metropolitan area - Wellington, and close to major transmission lines that supply the city with power. The terrain is hilly, with long ridges running 250 - 450 metres above sea level.
