See wildlife that's wild about living out here

While some once-common species are under threat on the mainland, we've got similar species that are unique and endemic to the Chathams – Chatham Island Shags, Pitt Island Shags, Chatham Island Taiko, Chatham Island Oyster Catchers, Chatham Petrels, Black Robins, Parea (Chatham Island Wood Pigeon), Chatham Island Warblers, Chatham Island Fantails, Chatham Island Tui and Chatham Island Tomtits. Wekas are a dime a dozen and even considered a pest. Our Red Admiral Butterfly is another different species to the mainlander.
