Meet long-lost locals

In 1972 only 18 Black Robins could be counted. By 1976 there were only seven  left. These were all moved to Mangere Island where 120,000 trees had been planted to provide better shelter. By 1980 there were only five Black Robins in the world with just a single breeding pair left. A dedicated team of New Zealand Wildlife Service staff decided to cross-foster eggs and young to another species. It was successful and by early 2013, the Black Robin population was around 250.
