From stunning alpine plants to the secrets of valley floor life, Wild Central describes a natural environment that is unique in New Zealand – a rainshadow basin-and-range region that is the driest and coldest place in New Zealand and also one of the hottest. Landforms and climate set it apart, and nurture a diverse range of flora and fauna, including numerous endemic species.
