MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
8None2,171,777NoneNone
New Zealand has a diverse range of bird species but is especially important for pelagics. Thirteen of the world's 18 penguin species have been recorded in the New Zealand region (including the Ross Dependency). Nine of these species breed here. Of petrels, 37 of the world's 114 species breed in the New Zealand region, some on the mainland or nearby islands so they can be seen flying around, but many stick to the Southern Ocean islands. Eleven of the world's 22 albatross species nest in New Zealand and of those nine do not nest elsewhere. Detailed descriptions of each site cover the type of terrain, and the tracks and trails where certain species are likely to be encountered, are included in this book. Particular species for each site are highlighted. A fact file for each site lists land or sea access is also included, featuring type of habitat, best time to visit, facilities, and accommodation. Key species for each site are also listed.… (more)
