Assignment Asia: Saving New Zealand's birds

New Zealand is a haven for unique wildlife. Many endangered bird species, like the kiwi, or the kaka, can be found there, but they are threatened by introduced predators like stoats. In 2019, Owen Poland spoke to Sir Rob Fenwick about his vision for New Zealand to be predator-free by 2050 and looked at the various ways New Zealand is trying to eradicate pests – from building the world's longest pest-proof fence to teaching school children how to trap pests. Sir Rob Fenwick passed away on March 11, 2020, but his vision for a predator-free future in New Zealand lives on.
