Product description

New Zealand's city of Dunedin and its surrounding environs are home to an amazing range of habitats and landscapes - of plants, animals, birds, insects, and geological features. From the ocean, with its albatrosses and penguins, to the high alpine zone of inland ranges, this book introduces a magnificent natural environment. This fully-revised edition of Wild Dunedin includes new and updated information and stunning new images, including a look at the new jewel in Dunedin's natural history crown, Orokonui Ecosanctuary. [The original edition of Wild Dunedin won the inaugural Montana New Zealand Book Awards' Natural Heritage Category in 1996.]
