This book brings a cast of many of New Zealand’s Conservationists, some known some unsung heroes, together in a beautifully presented thoroughly comprehensive book. From kakapo, tieke, and whio to rivers, trees and oceans. From marine biologists and experts to school students. It doesn’t matter who or what we can all be nature heroes.
We're given a short biography and details some of the projects happening in New Zealand by some passionate conservationists. Exquisite photos complement each article, as publications from Potton and Burton are renowned for. There are numerous practical activities interspersed through the book for readers to try. They can make sugar feeders, a weta motel or a home for a lizard. There are ideas on how to clean your local stream or advice for visiting a sanctuary. The variety in this book is sure to appeal to a wide readership. Whether you area scientist, an ambassador, researcher or friend, protection and conservation is at the heart of this book and everyone featured.
I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves and hopes to protect our environment and its wildlife. This books reminds us that we can all be Nature Heroes.
