Zoological "reset" in New Zealand

New Zealand became the first country in the world to accomplish a total zoological "reset". That is, biocoenosis was returned to its original state - before the appearance of the white man.

All invasive species of plants and animals were eliminated leaving only the native. Millions of European sparrows, deer, ferrets, Australian possums and Asian rats were disposed of quickly and painlessly by affecting the genome of these species.

Again New Zealand is a country of indigenous birds, arthropods, and a plant kingdom found nowhere else in the world.

Jeremy Nicholls We are on our way there now, most people are even removing non-native plants from their gardens and replacing with natives. Many islands are removed of all fauna, and endangered species are being re-introduced

Peter Winter I wasn't aware "the white man" trophy-hunted the Moas to extinction, among other species. Learn something new every day.

Ronan Payinda I hope you do realize that the first Polynesian settlers brought with them invasive species such as rats and dogs. Not to mention the fact that Moa, among other native birds, were hunted to extinction. And all of this long before European settlers arrived on the shores of Aotearoa.
