Triumphant return: extinct takahē birds come back to New Zealand’s wild

In a remarkable conservation triumph, New Zealand witnesses the return of the once-thought-extinct takahē, a stunningly vibrant, large, flightless bird. Eighteen of these majestic creatures have been reintroduced to the Lake Whakatipu Waimāori valley in the South Island after an absence of a century.

For the Ngāi Tahu tribe, this is a poignant moment, marking the return of birds their ancestors coexisted with and fought to protect. The takahē, known for their prehistoric appearance and unique adaptation to their environment, are flourishing again, thanks to dedicated conservation efforts. New Zealand’s commitment to preserving its native wildlife continues to bear fruit, offering hope for the future.
