Having friends on the Chatham Islands, I am aware of the many bird species that have become threatened and endangered on these small islands. The Chatham Island Oystercatcher is one such bird with very low numbers remaining after being decimated by introduced species. Thankfully the numbers are increasing slowly due to intensive conservation efforts.
