Tiritiri Matangi Island

Hauraki Bay, New Zealand, 2015.
One hundred and twenty years of agriculture almost completely destroyed the natural bush of the island. However, between 1984-1994 volunteers planted on Tiritiri approx. 300 thousand trees grown from seeds found on the island. They also re-introduced local species of birds. Now Tiritiri Matangi is entirely a scientific reserve and it's one of the greatest successes in New Zealand's nature and wildlife conservation.
