Incredible! free pdf This is a major conservation success story about possibly Australia's most spectacular rehabilitaion program. Phillip Island is near Norfolk Island,halfway between Sydney and Fiji. Before feral animals were released on Phillip Island, the island retained its natural sub-tropical vegetation andnative fauna. The first European settlers released pigs on the island in 1793. The settlers also introduced goats and rabbits to Phillip Island by1830. By around 1860 the island had almost no vegetation apart from a few remnant trees. By about 1900 only rabbits remained, preventing the growthof vegetation and allowing unrestricted erosion to continue. Rabbit eradication efforts between 1979 and 1986 succeeded, allowing theenvironment to rebound spectacularly.Although only about 200 hectares the island is extremely rugged with cliffs 200 metres high, necessitating unusual methods to reach inaccessible areas -swimming, rock climbing, even archery. This book describes the island's history and natural history, explaining how geological and geomorphologicalevents helped shape the ecosystem. With a diversity of breeding seabirds and some of the world's rarest plants, Phillip Island is a real naturaltreasure. Numerous photographs and maps show the wildlife and the spectacular revegetation. This is a landmark ecological case study.
