Log in to Reply But this island is called the bird sanctuary, my friend 1 Log in to Reply Yes, there are many islands and places that are bird sanctuaries in New Zealand. Log in to Reply I understand what you mean Although I am not in favour of birds being placed in cages we have love birds here that will only survive in cages or enclosed shelters. 1 Log in to Reply Yes, you are right Grace. Our little budgie Louis is one bird that just loves his own cage… Log in to Reply Well, at least they are protected there. 1 Log in to Reply Thanks so much Nela… 1 Log in to Reply it is sad that it cannot live free. To borrow from the Hindi text and used by Robert Oppenheimer to describe the post explosion reality of a nuclear explosion. A line that sadly now may fit more than ever before “I am become death – the destroyer of worlds.” 1 Log in to Reply On Tiritiri Matangi island the birds live free of cages, but the predators are removed and the people on the island plus Doc make sure it remains predator free.. 1 Log in to Reply that is such a sad situation. In the US we have new predators introduced into the Florida everglades. It has become a problem. Just because your pet python suddenly got to be 10 feet long and scary. 1 Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
