Kennedy Point marina director defends construction work

From Morning Report, 8:52 am on 9 June 2021

The developer behind Waiheke Island's Kennedy Point Marina says their construction work is not preventing korora - Little Blue Penguin - from swimming out of their nests.

Forest & Bird wrote to Auckland Council on Friday demanding work near the penguins nests be stopped immediately.

But the developer says it's working on a plan with a leading seabird ecologist, and it's yet to be given to the council for final approval.

Kennedy Point Marina director Kitt Littlejohn spoke to Susie Ferguson.
