Biodiversity challenge – Nene

Nene no-no

The nene would be history
Were it not for Peter Scott.
Its goose looked cooked
Until he plucked a handful
From Hawaii to a safer spot.
But here’s the biggest mystery:
Why, why
Introduce
The mongoose
To Hawaii?
“Welcome to Hawaii,
Asian mongoose.
Have you met
Hawaiian goose?
Say aloha,
Wave goodbyeee.”
