Rotoroa: Creating a novel ecosystem

: Rotoroa Island - Rototoa Island Trust

I like this story: for far too long people have ben accused of ‘playing God’ whenever they’ve tried to do something positive for our natural world. On the other side of the fence sits the business-as-usual crowd wilfully destroying habitats and species so that the economy can keep growing. Here at last we may be seeing a far better approach.

    Just had a very nice reply from Karyn Clare at Rotoroa. I’d congratulated them on their project, and Karyn sent the following links. The first one is the management plan for the actual introduction of rare species; the second is what the island is like before any introductions 🙂
