About a month ago the team at Ghost Fishing HQ and Healthy Seas HQ let us know that National Geographic were coming to interview and video our team in action here in New Zealand. We were astonished!

We spent a few days filming with the Nat Geo team and recovered a 40-50 metre ghost net in terrible conditions.

The documentary of the mission and recovery has just gone live on Nat Geo.

We're so proud of the Ghost Fishing team and what we have achieved here in New Zealand out of sheer tenacity, teamwork and community.

Feel free to share and enjoy.

Officer Andrew Savage and his partner Arlo joined us to show off Arlos impressive skills. Arlo is off to Wellington shortly to do the last three weeks of his training before graduating and hitting the streets of Auckland. Arlo is 2 1/2 and weighs in at over 40kg.....not something you would want to mess with! The focus on his handler was amazing (which is a good thing!) they ran through obedience and bite training. Lots of questions were answered.....a few curly ones as well! Thank you so much to the NZ Police for sharing Arlo with us.
