Listing Detail Tabs

When New Zealand was set adrift from Gondwanaland its isolation spurred the development of unique flora and fauna. Birds quickly adapted to fill the vacant ecological niches. Nocturnal and flightless, the Kakapo perfectly adapted to its surroundings, but with the arrival of people and other mammals, its numbers rapidly declined. Until now the Kakapo has been a bird with many secrets however, with the aid of special night-vision equipment those secrets can now be revealed.

The Black Stilt, New Zealand's rarest wading bird, is now confined to a few rivers in the vast upland plateau of the Mackenzie Basin. Many summer birds migrate to avoid the harsh New Zealand winter but the Black Stilt endures - they simply shift downstream to the open water of the deltas. While superbly suited to its high-country habitat, interbreeding and competition for nesting sites are endangering the Black Stilts and time is running out.

The Chatham Islands lie in the path of the Roaring Forties. These remote islands evolved into a bird paradise where the Black Robin thrived. With the arrival of people a century and a half ago, the Black Robin earned the dubious distinction of being the rarest bird on earth with only five left in existence. The Robin's story tells how easy it was to destroy perfection and how painstakingly difficult it has been to save one of nature's most endearing creations.
