fabulous! I have followed the black robin story for some years now and to see the absolutely backbreaking work your conservationists have done to save this beautiful little battler is a credit to NZ and its people.
It makes me realise how much easier(at least physically) our conservationwork here in Aus is.Thankyou!!

Great idea. They are all really good documentaries. But we will have to check on their availability with Natural History New Zealand. We'll look into it...

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this. Any chance of the other two documentaries - "The Black Robin" and "The Robin's Return" being added to the site?

Cool video, it's good to know that the population is about 200 black robins by now!

Great footage - Really enjoyed watching the Seven Black Robins and how they actually managed to capture them.
