Hihi, is a medium-sized forest species that is one of New Zealand’s rarest birds. It is threatened and nationally vulnerable. A new study however shows the fight for the Hihi isn't over yet. Dr Anna Santure says “For hihi, the analysis matches previous work that we’ve done suggesting a low capacity to adapt, but they can be buffered from extinction by conservation management actions such as provisioning food and parasite and predator control.”
