Be in to win one of three copies of Tamatea Dusky, valued at $69.99 each.

Peta Carey worked alongside conservationists checking stoat traps and searching for tokoeka (kiwi) in the snow while researching her book Tamatea Dusky. The book charts the conservation history of the remote sound, southwest of Fiordland. We’re giving away three copies, valued at $69.99 each.


Tamatea/Dusky Sound, in the southwestern corner of Fiordland National Park, contains a magnificent archipelago of over 700 islands.

It has a fascinating history, both Maori and European, but best known for being the place where Captain Cook and the Resolution crew spent six weeks in 1773.

Arguably, it is the conservation story that is its most compelling and enduring, for this is where nature conservation began in New Zealand over 120 years ago, and where much of our ground-breaking work in predator control and species conservation has taken place over the last 50 years. Today, the greater Tamatea/Dusky Sound is the focus of one of the most significant and ambitious conservation and restoration projects in the world, as populations of such birds as kakapo, kiwi, and tieke/saddleback are protected and re-established.
