About this book

Full colour throughout, New Zealand Wildlife provides a comprehensive overview of the natural history of the country's archipelago. Famous for its flightless birds such as the emblematic kiwi and the endangered takahe, it is also home to lizard-like tuataras, giant kuari trees and a rich coastal marine life. Thorough background information on geology, geography and palaeontology is coupled with extensive wildlife and habitat listings. Also included are full details on where to go, along with recommended tramping tracks.
