DOC cracks down on rogue tourist operators

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 18 July 2019

DOC says it won't hesitate to prosecute people who repeatedly flout access to public land for commercial gain. It follows a crackdown by the department on the number of people guiding tourists through New Zealand's national parks without permission. Marta Lang is DOC's National Compliance Manager and joins Kathryn to talk about how higher tourist numbers and the resulting impact on the environment means they're having to get tougher on rogue operators.
