Richard Henry of Resolution Island


A Biography by

Susanne & John Hill

John McIndoe Ltd, 1987, 51 Crawford Street, Dunedin, New Zealand.

”Richard Henry, little known and mostly unsung, was the first champion of New Zealand's flightless birds. This fascinating man has been called ‘the hermit of Dusky Sound’, ‘the Gilbert White of Fiordland’, and ‘a modern St Francis of Assisi.’

”His observations and descriptions of the natural history of the sound, his close relationship with its wildlife and his extraordinary efforts to save kakapos and kiwis from extinction, have been an invaluable contribution to wildlife conservation in New Zealand.“
