These birds are only found in New Zealand and nearby islands. Most endemic varieties are now extinct. The moa, huia, quail and eagle are among them. 42% of all bird species have become extinct since humans arrived in NZ.

A few however still survive although many are endangered and need our help to continue. They include flightless birds (e.g. kiwi, takahe, kakapo and weka), forest birds (e.g. black robin, tui, kereru and kea),  shore birds (e.g. shags, dotterels and oystercatchers), wetland birds (e.g. fernbird, grey and blue ducks), and seabirds (e.g. penguins and gulls).
