In 1986, I was invited by Dick Veitch of the New Zealand Wildlife Service to visit the Chatham Islands, to record ground-breaking conservation work to save the black robin from extinction.

The subsequent book ‘Black Robin Country’, published by Hodder & Stoughton, was well received, and in 1988 I embarked on a second visit to Little Barrier Island and Stewart Island, to document further work to save the Kakapo parrot from a similar fate.

Both birds are now doing well, proof that dedicated conservation work can make a serious contribution to species bio-diversity.
