New Caledonia is one of the last remaining fragments of the lost continent of Zealandia! A land mass that drifted away from Australia about 85 million years ago! Most of this land would eventually be submerged under the Pacific Ocean but a few remaining islands would act as a time capsule of endemic species like no other!
Here, with the near total absence of mammals, the islands of New Caledonia would be a haven for birds, reptiles, and a staggering array of plants found nowhere else on earth. Creatures who can trace their ancestry back to the lost super continent of Mesozoic Gondwana!
