Fight for the Wild episode three focuses on the mahi being undertaken to save New Zealand’s endangered bird species.While bird song is receding across New Zealand’s mainland, hundreds of community-led projects are leading the charge to turn things around. On the North Island’s East Cape the government answers the call from iwi for help to save the decimated Raukūmara Forest and in Wellington a dedicated group of urban trappers are taking on Miramar Peninsular with the vision of achieving the world’s first predator free capital city. Kea numbers continue to decline in the South Island and in the Perth Valley, Zero Invasive Predators (ZIP) make some break-throughs in their quest to remove predators and protect borders from reinvasion.
