Given the abundance of New Zealand s wilderness areas, it is no surprise that the country s native wildlife is a major drawcard. In the latest title in his compact-format pictorial series, leading photographer Rob Suisted showcases the most iconic and popular species.
Wildlife of New Zealand includes not merely the flagship species like kiwi, kauri, kakapo and tuatara, but a unique assembly of fascinating plants and animals that have evolved amid habitats ranging from alpine peaks, open scrub and subtropical forest to wetlands, rocky or sandy shores and the open Pacific. And ease of access to New Zealand's great outdoors means that almost all of these species can be seen firsthand by the visitor.
Well researched and informative captions from natural history writer and editor Matt Turner make this not only a stunning photographic collection, but also a very useful reference.
