Ms Sage spent the day in Dunedin making various visits, including to the Wildlife Hospital, where she had lunch with university researchers Dr van Heezik, Phil Seddon and Melanie Young, before heading to Penguin Place.

Ms Sage also went to the Otago Mayoral Forum, where she spoke about solid waste and recycling, as well as the Government’s Jobs for Nature programme.

She will attend the 2020 yellow-eyed penguin symposium at the University of Otago today.
