About this book

Numbers of the Chatham Island black robin fell to the point where at one time, there was only one viable breeding pair left. However, swift action saved the species from extinction. This book describes the innovative techniques used, and will be of great use to wildlife biologists around the world who are facing similar problems. Interlaced with personal anecdotes, it is also a highly entertaining read.

"[...] essential reading for any biologist dealing with the hands-on management of small populations [...]"
- Graham Wragg, IBIS
