While not strictly about birds, I know many of you have visited Lord Howe 
Island and Ball's Pyramid, so some here might be interested in this animation 
about the Lord Howe Island stick insect, its near extinction, rediscovery and 
plans to reintroduce it to the island if rats can be eliminated there.

Note that you'll have to enter the password to access the video, as noted below.

Hi All

Please find attached a link to an animated feature on the Lord Howe Island 
phasmid. While clearly not the only reason to undertake a rodent eradication on 
this Island, it would be fantastic to be able to return this invertebrate, 
which in the wild is currently found under a single Melaleuca bush some 300m up 
the sheer face of 650m high Ball’s Pyramid 23 km to the south of the main 
island, to its original location

The feature call “Sticky” can be found online at:

The creator Jilli Rose asks:

“Please share the link with whoever you like. The only rule: please don't 
upload it anywhere as this would hurt our chances at the film festivals.

Enjoy! And do please let us know what you think.
