Wildlife and Landscape Photographer, Lecturer and Tour Guide

Aotearoa – Land of the Long White Cloud

New Zealand is a wonderful place to visit for a wildlife holiday or to photograph the locations and wildlife.  This talk takes the form of a tour that Mike co-led to this island nation.  It visits coastal locations for Albatrosses and other seabirds right through to atmospheric forests of Southern Beech, Kauri and Tree Ferns.  There are glaciers to be seen in the Southern Alps and we visit the lower slopes of Aoraki or Mount Cooke.  Many endemic species have come close to extinction (including Black Stilt which has a population of just 120 in the wild) due to introduced predators.  Many of the rarities will be mentioned during this talk which is given alongside Mike’s stunning images.
