Lord Howe Island Stick Insects

The Lord Howe Island Stick Insects were nearly driven to extinction by Black Rats in the early 20th century. They were thought to be extinct for over 80 years. They were re-discovered in 2001 on Balls Pyramid which is a rat-free zone. The Melbourne Zoo has kept the insects captive and have bred them. There are only about 20-30 insects alive.  You have to be careful because if you accidentally kill some, they could be extinct forever.
