Whaling and Sealing in Southern New Zealand


Written by popular author Invercargill naturalist, historian and teacher Lloyd Esler, this book tells of two great industries, whaling and sealing, which had a significant place in the history of southern New Zealand. This book draws information from many sources to tell that story. It covers as well a little of the conservation and biology of whales and seals and looks at evidence for the existence of a New Zealand otter.
