Encouraging news from Marlborough King Shag survey

From Morning Report, 8:52 am on 5 July 2019

A survey of the population of the endangered King Shag has just finished in the Marlborough Sounds - and there's encouraging news.

The entire population is estimated to be just one-thousand and they breed only in the outer part of the Sounds.

Jonathan Large from the Marine Farming Association was part of the five-day survey team.
