Ulva Island visitors guide RGB
Ulva Island is located inside Paterson Inlet of Stewart Island, the southern third island in the New Zealand archipelago. It is believed to have been named by the early Scottish settlers after their namesake Isle of Ulva near the Isle of Iona and beside Mull in the Inner Hebrides, Scotland. Ulva Island is universally renowned for the endemic, native birds and plants that constantly fascinate visitors to this little southern bird sanctuary. The author, Ulva Goodwillie, is of Rakiura/Stewart Island Maori heritage with the Scots side of her family arriving six generations ago. Fortuitously named after Ulva Island, she founded Ulva’s Guided Walks – a professional birding and natural history guiding company – over twelve years ago. Since then, thousands of visitors have received distinctive and personalised guided tours of Ulva Island with her and her carefully chosen expert local guides. Ulva’s Guided Walks has earned a highly respected and enviable international reputation in this field. Ulva’s lovely book, with its stunning colour photographs – featuring many by well-known New Zealand photographer Gareth Eyres – will allow easy identification of the unique flora and fauna when strolling along the Island’s gravelled pathways. Each bird present on Ulva Island has been given its own two-page spread with details of its size, plumage and habits etc. Ulva Island has always been her passion. This Ulva Island Visitor’s Guide will make it yours.
