Local Focus Remote control magpies saving our native falcon

The New Zealand falcon or kārearea is a rare sight, even in the rural back-blocks.

Debbie Stewart from Wingspan, an organisation trying to save our falcons, says they're more and more under threat.

"Alarmingly, out of all the falcons that come to Wingspan each year the majority of them have injuries caused by deliberate shooting," Stewart said.
