Riassunto: Modern Kapiti Island is best known as a sanctuary for wildlife. It is one of New Zealandâ€™s longest and most exciting conservation stories, beginning in 1897. Projects to eradicate possums and rats, and to increase or establish populations of endangered birds such as the little spotted kiwi, have put the country on the world map for conservation management and have provided models to follow in other parts of the country. Animal pests are eradicated, weeds controlled, and the forests are returning. The island provides a home for a variety of endangered birds and other threatened fauna and flora. In the surrounding marine reserve, sea life is flourishing. This book is written by people who have contributed to the restoration of the island.
