The flying range of our mutton birds includes the vicinity of Fukushima but how thorough is NZ’s testing for contamination?

This is dated 2014. As always with detection of possible environmental contamination, the various industries tend to set the bar low enough to eliminate any public concern. Certainly this one does not look too thorough. All due respect to the small players that are of course powerless to stop the fall out from that disaster that still goes on… amidst the endless rounds of denial & cover up by the perpetrators.

From postmanproductions.wordpress.com … TRANSCRIPT concerning the testing of the birds for possible radiation from Fukushima: 

“Mutton birds fly every six years all around the world to the northern hemisphere which includes off the coast of Fukushima. At the moment Ngai Tahu are doing testing … they are only testing the wing tips, and only doing thirty birds, and what they really need to be doing is testing the organs … they are actually testing the chicks of parents that may not have ever been to Fukushima, so they’ll have to keep doing it … that’s the mutton bird island you can see over here …. ”

Listen further to the video which does get difficult to hear because of background noise in the location.
