Into the Wild New Zealand-Style Smithsonian Seminar

Southern Royal Albatross, New Zealand

In this illustrated lecture, travel writer Andrew Evans explores the geography, biology, and history of all these islands in depth and tells the story of one of the world’s least-known destinations that is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Find out more about the nature lover’s paradise of Stewart Island and what lies beyond the Southern Ocean, the rare penguins of Snares Island, the snipes and sea lions of the Auckland Islands, the amazing albatross colonies on Campbell Island, and wildlife-rich Macquarie Island of Australia.

This wild and verdant country extends far beyond its most visible pair of isles to numerous chains of remote and fascinating islands stretching from the tropics to the sub-Antarctic.
