Ok, I realise I may have misconstrued L’s
comment, sorry L, a bit slow this morning…
However, the first part of my email still
stands……Based on John’s
theory, when Night Parrot is rediscovered, they will whisk a couple away to
somewhere where we can all cue up and shell out $1000 to see them – can’t
wait!I’m all for seeing rare/endangered
birds, but at the cost of the species’ survival….hmm, surely you
don’t have to think too long about that one!
And the stoat thing is their concern that
someone might introduce them (sabotage or stupidity).There was a recent scare with another
offshore island, KapitiIsland, where someone had supposedly liberated brush-tailed possums back
on the island – they were eradicated in the 1980’s after a LOT of intensive work.It seems this may have been a hoax, but
still costs a lot of money to investigate and disprove.
