These Campbell Island teal – a male (front left) and two females – are on Codfish Island (near Stewart Island). The species was thought to be extinct until a group were discovered on Dent Island, near Campbell Island – which was rat-free, but precipitous. Some were transferred to Codfish Island to establish a back-up population.
