New carvings installed
Twelve carved poupou marine reserve markers have been installed in Doubtful Sound. Each were originally placed in Charles Sound in 2014 and now stand guard in the fiord replacing the traditional white triangle marine markers. The poupou are part of a collaborative project between the Fiordland Marine Guardians, Department of Conservation and local iwi from Te Ru¯ naga o O¯ raka Aparima. They were designed and carved by Bubba Thompson.
