A Naturalist’s Story: the Birds of New Zealand

771 771 people viewed this event.

Aotearoa/New Zealand is home to some of the most unique and ancient avifauna on the planet such as the takahē, ngutu pare/wrybill, kea, and kākāpō. This stems from a combination of 80 million years of isolation, an increasingly varied climate ranging from subtropical to subantarctic, and a relatively recent history of human settlement. Twenty-year-old Oscar Thomas has been a birder and photographer for over half his life, and he will introduce you to New Zealand’s fascinatingly diverse array of bird species, what makes them special, their unfortunate threats, as well as give insight into the completion of his first book, A Naturalist’s Guide to the Birds of New Zealand.
