About this book

A richly illustrated account of the island's diverse plants and animals, and the people behind this globally significant conservation success story.

Rising to the highest point in the Hauraki Gulf, Te Hauturu-o-Toi/Little Barrier Island stands sentinel over its rare and endangered birds, plants and animals. It is home to New Zealand's most diverse native bird and reptile communities, a prodigious number of seabirds and a vast array of invertebrate fauna.

New Zealand's first nature reserve, it is also a global symbol of conservation success and innovation. The island's story is not just of its animals and plants, but of people, too: of Ngati Manuhiri and Ngati Rehua, the tangata whenua, and of the rangers, researchers and volunteers whose efforts have inspired the conservation world.

Written by experts across a range of fields, Hauturu is a comprehensive account of the history and biodiversity of a very special place.

Biography

Lyn Wade has been a member of the Little Barrier Island (Hauturu) Supporters' Trust since its inception in 1997 and is the current chairperson. Her first visit to Hauturu was in 1956 alongside her father, Bill Hamilton, in the course of researching his DSIR Bulletin 137 'Little Barrier Island (Hauturu)'. Lyn has made multiple visits since then, and has written two reports for the Department of Conservation. In 2018 Lyn was awarded a QSM for her services to conservation. She is based near Warkworth.

Dick Veitch spent his working career with the New Zealand Wildlife Service, now part of the Department of Conservation. His first contact with Hauturu was in 1964, with the team carrying out the transfer of kiwi from Little Barrier to Ponui Island. He later managed the cat eradication project, transfer of hihi to other islands, the return of tieke and the transfer of kokako to Hauturu. Dick is now retired, but is still actively involved with restoration projects on Hauturu. He lives at Papakura, south of Auckland.
