Illustrations by Noel W Cusa.

Text by Ronald M Lockley.

“During the 20th century the world lost at least 68 of the larger and more interesting bird and other animal species. At the present time over 300 species or subspecies are on the world list of rare and endangered species in the IUCN Red Data Book: of those approximately eleven percent are from New Zealand and its outlying islands. These endangered species are vividly recorded here by Noel Cusa’s paintings in full colour. They are described by Ronald Lockley, who explains why they are in danger of extinction and what is being done to try to save them – as man, belatedly, endeavours to play his new role as protector.”
