About this title


New Zealand's lonely sub antarctic Islands the Antipodes, Bounty, Snares, Campbell, and Auckland islands lie south of NZ, on the way to Antarctic, isolated by the notorious Roaring Forties and gale force winds of Southern Ocean. These islands are vital breeding grounds for millions of sea birds, and thousands of marine mammals. There live many animals and plants unique to the region, however, humans have made negative impact on these remote Islands, by sealing, whaling, farming, hunting, seafarers, leaving wild sheep and rats, as well as pollution from shipwrecks. The islands are also in danger of future threats. However, today, all five island groups are managed as nature reserves. This book with its superb photographs and illustrations, is written in a clear and readable style, and is the first comprehensive book about New Zealand's subantarctic islands.
