About this book

Kapiti Island is best known as a sanctuary for wildlife. It is one of New Zealand's longest and most exciting restoration stories, beginning in 1897. The island provides a home for a variety of endangered birds and other rare flora and fauna and in the surrounding marine reserve, sea life flourishes. Projects here to eradicate possums and rats, and to establish or increase populations of endangered birds have put the country on the world map for conservation management.
