The following article in this week's Science magazine "BIODIVERSITY CRISIS ON TROPICAL ISLANDS: Paradise Lost, Then Regained" by Richard Stone - provides an positive example of how aggressive ecological restoration can be effective. It discusses the case of Cousine Island in the Seychelles archipelago where the private owners of the island eliminated the ferals and exotics, with subsequent rebounds in the numbers of Brush Warblers and Lesser Noddies [90,000 breeding pairs].

Regards, Laurie.
