Urban forests have resulted in a resurgence of birdlife, including species that have been extinct for generations

A wild wonderland sits just ten minutes outside of Wellington’s city limits, where the sounds of up to 40 different bird species may be heard above hikers.

The huge urban forest of Zealandia is helping to demonstrate that restoring the native forests in cities can result in native species returning, which is especially important in a region with such a distinctive ecology as New Zealand.

The park, which is classified as an eco-sanctuary, is beautiful in and of itself, but it’s also having a positive impact on bird populations in suburban and even metropolitan regions of the nation’s capital.
