About this book

This work offers a stunningly illustrated celebration of the rugged beauty and amazing wildlife of Macquarie Island. Situated halfway between Australia and Antarctica, Macquarie Island is a speck of land in the middle of the Southern Ocean and one of the most remote landmasses on earth. A World Heritage Area, the island is geologically unique and home to a fantastic array of flora and fauna. For the first 100 years after its discovery in 1810, the people that settled there exploited its natural resources so heavily that the wildlife became endangered.
However, in 1933 its unique natural habitat was recognized and it was declared a wildlife sanctuary. Today, it is once again a haven for subantarctic wildlife.Lavishly illustrated with exemplary full-colour photography and specially commissioned artwork, this stunning volume explores all aspects of Macquarie Island - from its rich history to life on the island today, its geology and plant life, and the stunning variety of wildlife that call it home.
