Richard Henry of Resolution Island, the world’s first conservationist.

In the late 1800s he predicted what would happen to our native wildlife but he had a big idea.

He “Dunkirked” hundreds of Kakapo from the mainland to his lonely island but it all ended in tears.

This is a truly heart-breaking story about a man who should be on our money.
