Feature Guest - Roger Beattie

From Nine To Noon, 10:05 am on 12 July 2010

Roger Beattie is a farmer who's breeding a rare species of Chatham Islands weka on part of his Banks Peninsula farm and wants to raise them commercially for their meat. He also wants to sustainably mill native trees on a block he owns near Wanganui to fund environmental protection work there. He talks about why he's not afraid to ruffle a few feathers.
