New Zealandís Wilderness Heritage is a comprehensive record and description of New Zealandís wilderness, in all its magnificent geological and biological diversity. It will appeal to all who are concerned at what is happening to our natural landscapes and seascapes, and what can be done to better conserve them. In very readable language, it traverses the origins of New Zealandís heritage of wild land, its character, the major campaigns to protect it and priorities for its future conservation.

Originally published in a larger format, this edition has been scaled down to create a more affordable book, as well as being completely revised. The book takes a bio-regional approach, with 14 chapters detailing the protected areas, major flora and fauna values, endangered species and conservation threats and responses for each region of New Zealand. A concluding chapter throws out the major challenges that we need to address as a nation to retain our outstanding wilderness heritage.

New Zealandís Wilderness Heritage is illustrated throughout with the landscape photography of Craig Potton, supplemented by wildlife photographs from one of New Zealandís pre-eminent photographers in this genre, Rod Morris.
