Environment
Norfolk Island has a tropical, temperate, maritime climate. Its isolated location makes it home to many endemic and unique species of birds, animals, and plants. 1 Before the island was settled by British explorers, it was almost entirely covered in rainforest. Human settlement led to clearance of almost all natural rainforests and the introduction of deadly alien species. 2 Today, the island’s administration has set aside land as a national park in order to conserve as much wildlife as possible.
