The developers of Waiheke’s Kennedy Point Marina will now be able to capture and move kororā, little blue penguins, found during construction work, Stuff reveals. The Department of Conservation (DOC) has granted authority under the Wildlife Act for approved handlers to capture, handle and relocate kororā during work on the rock breakwater where they nest. Protect Pūtiki, a group of kaitiaki (guardians) which has opposed the Auckland marina since construction started a year ago, said it was “outraged” at the decision.
