Spectrum for 6 July 2014

From Spectrum, 12:05 pm on 6 July 2014

You arrive with a bang on Little Barrier Hauturu. The island's been a wild life sanctuary since 1897, there's no jetty, and the boat carrying visitors lands by speeding up a ramp on shore, and then being winched up to a boat house. A team of scientists has been collecting birds on the island for transport to a new sanctuary on Rotoroa Island. Visitors to Hauturu are by invitation only, and for Spectrum David Steemson is part of a group invited to watch the final bird collection work.
