Pictured is the New Zealand shoveler/kuruwhengi. This duck is a subspecies endemic to New Zealand. It is not protected from hunters, with about 30,000 shot during duck hunting season. The female looks like the female mallard, the introduced species...therefore only a total ban on duck shooting will protect them.
