Danger to our wildlife

This young shag was found on the road by Boiler Point car park in Careys Bay.

Having ushered it away from the danger of passing cars I then discovered the poor creature faced a far more gruesome danger to its life. 

A fishing line could be seen protruding out of its beak.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
