Choice TV is running a series about the Dunedin wildlife hospital that caters for native NZ animals. Each week Newsroom will show an exclusive extra scene from last night’s episode.

Episode 5: The Royal Albatross Centre

Whilst wildlife rescuers are busy with daily dramas, quietly ticking away in the background is one of New Zealand’s greatest conservation success stories. The majestic toroa/Northern Royal Albatross raise their chicks on Dunedin’s doorstep every year, with just a little bit of help from Department of Conservation ranger Jim Watts.
