8:12 Insight Marine Reserves - Important Protection or Tokenism?

There are more marine reserves than ever before – but is this a genuine step forward for conservation, or nothing more than a token gesture? The government says it is committed to preserving New Zealand's marine environment with a record number of marine reserves being unveiled this year. It says it wants to be a world leader in marine management but environmentalists are saying the reserves are offering a pitiful level of protection. They say the introduction of more reserves is a clear contradiction when the government continues to encourage oil and gas exploration.

Radio New Zealand's fisheries reporter, Alison Hossain, explores whether New Zealand is paving the way as a world leader in marine protection or is at all just smoke and mirrors?
Produced by Philippa Tolley.
