We're lucky in New Zealand, spoiled, in fact, when it comes to the sheer breadth of opportunities to experience wildlife and wild places. Where else could you encounter animals, evolved through millions of years of isolation, as unique and wonderful as the kiwi or the tuatara? Or tramp through unspoiled forest, hearing the melodic sounds of native birdsong in the canopy of forest giants above and the music of a rushing mountain stream below? With Forest & Bird's Wild Encounters in hand, you too can experience our country at its wildest.
Wild Encounters is your complete guide to more than twenty of the best nature experiences ew Zealand has to offer. Each entry contains maps, travel details and what to see and do, all accompanied by beautiful photography. You'll have all the information you need to discover the wildlife in places as diverse as Great Barrier Island, Tongariro and Kaikoura.
