Environmental campaigners want halt to Waiheke work

From Morning Report, 8:56 am on 8 June 2021

Environmental campaigners are seeking an urgent halt to work on Waiheke Island - saying kororā - or little blue penguins - are at risk.

Forest and Bird says a construction project on the island is preventing the kororā from swimming out of their nests. 

They have written to Auckland Council asking for work at Kennedy Point to be stopped immediately. 

Forest & Bird Auckland regional manager Lissy Fehnker-Heather spoke to Guyon Espiner.
