New Zealand on high alert in an effort to protect island nation from bio-invaders

New Zealand has some of the most unique wildlife of any large location in the world. That's due in large part to the fact that the two islands broke away from the rest of the world's landmass before the rise of mammals. So the island's birds evolved in special ways. But that diversity is threatened by introduced animals and bacteria.
