Corey Mosen - Ajax the Kea Conservation Dog

From Saturday Morning, 8:45 am on 12 August 2017

Mosen then places cameras in and around the nests to monitor the birds and the predators which attack them. He says that while he mostly works in Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes national parks for the Department of Conservation, his patch is anywhere that kea live.He also volunteers for the Kea Conservation Trust. Mosen, Ajax and the kea star in a Loading Docs 2017 film, Ajax the Kea Conservation Dog.
