Norfolk Island subtropical forests

WWF Abstract

When Norfolk Island was first settled, European farmers must have marveled at the abundant rain forests full of pines. Populations of the Norfolk Island green parrot, for example, were so abundant that settlers used sticks to beat the parrots off the crops. By 1983, however, so much native habitat had been destroyed that only 16 green parrots remained. But there may be hope for the species yet.
