Nash says the rules are about making sure people don't toilet in inappropriate places. What do you think of the proposed new rules? Have you ever been impacted by freedom campers?

We are looking for a VERY SPECIAL Home...

Alison Shrigley Reporter from Whangārei Leader

We don't know what happened with her leg as it was an old injury. Now, thanks to our vet team and the care of our staff, she is desexed, has had her leg amputated and is ready to move on and find her forever home. She's a smoochy, sweet natured girl with a loving, playful purrsonality.
She is still recovering and learning about life on 3 legs. Once she has built up her strength she will be a normal cat with an awesome nature! We are looking for a family home with older kids, no other cats as she has been treated for cat flu, and a safe area for her once she's outside as she won't be as quick on her feet for a while. You can check her out on our website or give us a call at the centre on 094389161 ext 5 to make an appointment to come in and meet her www.spca.nz...

Hi Whangārei,

Would you support a predator-free, fenced area in an area near you?

Five kiwi have been found dead in Northland and a dog is believed to be responsible.

The Department of Conservation is urging dog owners to keep control of their pets especially during the daytime where kiwi are at their most vulnerable.

From 1990 to 2018, 345 kiwi were killed by dogs in the North Island, according to DOC. With heightened conservation efforts, the Northland kiwi population is showing positive signs of recovery.
