OCW recommends: The Turning Point

From Our Changing World, 5:00 am on 20 November 2023

If you enjoy listening to Our Changing World, we reckon that you might be keen on a new video series just released on RNZ.

The Turning Point is about the new generation of kaitiaki across Aotearoa taking on the challenge of protecting and restoring our natural environment, paving the way to a more hopeful future.

Each of the six episodes follows one person, giving a glimpse into the communities they work with and telling the story of their journey into conservation. They look at how they got to where they are now, what their day-to-day jobs look like, the challenges facing the affected species and the impact of their work.

Caring for penguins, growing native plants, battling wilding pines, protecting kōkako, helping migratory fish and bridging the gap between science and mātauranga Māori - these young conservationists are making a positive change for te taiao.

Watch the The Turning Point on the RNZ website, or on the RNZ YouTube channel.
