It is great to see a local book as stunning as the new Random House book, Rare wildlife of New Zealand by Rod Morris and Alison Ballance. Described as both ” a celebration and a call to arms”, the book highlights 100 species, from trees to flowers, bats and kiwis to tiny insects. The photographs throughout are terrific and quite remarkable in their clarity and their beauty.

One of the co-authors, Alison Ballance, is appearing at The Press Christchurch Writers Festival on Saturday in a session with Neville Peat and Brian Turner, chaired by photographer Craig Potton, called Can Words Save The World? Certainly a book like this does indicate that perhaps they can in that a passion for conservation informs work like this.
