The Eco Warriors are a group of Māori youth from Waihīrere near Gisborne.  They've taken on the role of being kaitiaki on their own ancestral land of Waihīrere Domain.

Native Affairs reporter Renee Kahukura Iosefa caught up with an environmentally-keen group of rangatahi who are paving the way for youth leadership in conservation and preserving their natural environment.
