Focusing on Wildlife has a fascinating story today on the results of a recent survey of the New Caledonian highlands. New Caledonia is a long, narrow, mountainous island in the Pacific Ocean, east of Australia and about midway between New Guinea and New Zealand. A hotbed of endemism and biodiversity, New Caledonia is famously home to the Kagu, but it supports a great variety of other species too, nearly all of which are threatened by loss and degradation of native vegetation cover. This recent survey included a rare opportunity to photograph the critically imperiled Crow Honeyeater.
