Zealandia – a mainland island in the city
Wildlife sanctuaries are rarely found in the centre of a big city. Yet Zealandia in the inner city suburb of Karori, Wellington, is home of some of New Zealand’s rarest species – including animals that had been extinct on the mainland for more than a century.
The sanctuary is ringed by a predator-proof fence. That’s allowed park rangers to clear non-native mammals and reintroduce species such as the extremely rare Takahe and the iconic Kiwis.
