Royal Albatross - Nick Butcher

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 19 January 2016

A rare northern royal albatross has been nursed back to health, and released back into the wild this morning. The toroa was found critically injured near Moa Point in Wellington earlier this month. And Wellington Zoo has been working hard to save it. RNZ's reporter, Nick Butcher, was on the boat this morning to witness its release.
