Endangered Icons - The View From the Ground Level

Card Covers
The Halcyon Press
Auckland, New Zealand
240 pages
Colour & B/w Photography

For the past 14 years the author has been at the sharp end of recovery programmes for kiwi, kokako, kakapo, kaka and blue duck.

As a result he has spent thousands of hours in the bush observing, capturing and monitoring some of New Zealand's most endangered icons. Kiwi Hunter is an unsanitised firsthand account of the battle to save New Zealand's most distinctive animal, now threatened with extinction. Sid frankly confronts the issues - the counter-productive conservation politics, aerial 1080 poison operations, and some of the unsavoury blood 'n' guts aspects of trapping and hunting control measures. Kiwi Hunter also strives to bring to public notice today's conservation heroes and personalities - kiwi fieldworkers, goat/deer hunters, stoat and possum trappers - who work hard to protect the kiwi and its habitat. Finally it presents an unprecedented view from ground level of the cryptic flightless birds themselves.
