Summer Newsroom

Welcome to Summer Newsroom

Welcome to Summer Newsroom. Our first year was ground-breaking, and this year has been no different. 

While our reporters are having a much-deserved break, we're bringing you a selection of stories to take you through the summer period. 

We will be back up and running as usual from January 14. Until then we shall be showcasing some of our most-read stories from the year, under the running title 'Best of the Year'. 

We have a selection of videos from the new documentary series, Orangutan Jungle School, thanks to the help of Dunedin’s NHNZ.

And along with a selection of new stories each day, we also will also present some of our long-form features, also known as 'Long Reads'.

For our newsletter subscribers, you can expect to receive an email each Friday. And we're having a daily publish time of 8am. 

We want to thank you for your ongoing support throughout these two years. Thank you to all our donors, subscribers, readers, and sponsors who have made this year possible. 


Newsroom is powered by the generosity of readers like you, who support our mission to produce fearless, independent and provocative journalism.
