New Zealand is committed to preserving its unique biodiversity by setting an ambitious goal to free its landscapes from relentless predators that have devastated native bird species. With a determined timeline of 2050, the government is embarking on an unprecedented journey to achieve what has never been done before. Due to New Zealand’s past isolation from land predators, its native birds are highly vulnerable to introduced pests. The impact of invasive mammals and human settlement has already led to the loss of nearly a third of the country’s native species. Despite ongoing challenges, New Zealand’s unwavering determination to restore ecological balance and protect its avian treasures drives its pursuit of a predator-free nation.
