Wild Coasts




Publication Date:

A fascinating exploration of some of Aotearoa’s marine reserves Aotearoa is renowned for its wild coasts, but after decades of overfishing, many of these marine ecosystems are under serious threat. A crucial response to this has been the creation of 44 marine reserves around our shores, and this book explores six of the most spectacular of these: Goat Island, north of Auckland, the Poor Knights Islands, Taputeranga on the south coast of Wellington, Hikurangi at Kaikoura, Piopiotahi (Milford Sound) in Fiordland, and Ulva Island at Stewart Island/Rakiura.

Full of fascinating information and wonderful illustrations of the amazing sea life found in the marine reserves, ‘Wild Coasts’ is an inspiring tribute to these safe zones. It will be treasured by all young people who are interested in our marine environment. Written by award-winning illustrator and author, Ned Barraud, this is aimed at the 7-10 age group.
