- Isolated from the rest of the world for 80 million years, life on the islands of New Zealand has taken its own bizarre path. This series reveals the country's rich and intriguing wildlife stories, from the bustling communities of penguins hiding away in giant daisy forests to the kakapo -- Earth's only species of flightless nocturnal parrots. New Zealand was also the last place to be discovered and settled by people who brought with them new animals, like merino sheep and new predators like the stoat. Finally, Wild New Zealand meets the pioneering conservation heroes who are fighting to save some of its most endangered species. New Zealand was one of the last land masses to be found and settled by people. Lush and fertile, almost everything brought here flourishes, often with surprising consequences. Told through the experiences of its native species - in particular, a charismatic and peculiar giant, flightless parrot - this is the moving story of the changing fortunes of New Zealand's wildlife since humans first arrived.
