“New Zealand is a Biological Ark. 80% of New Zealand's native species are found nowhere else on Earth. Most of EcoWorld’s animals come from the Marlborough Sounds whose nearshore rocky reefs are diverse, capable of endless surprise, murky, cold and difficult to visit. Rocky reefs are haven for rare and endangered species which contributes to their fascination which we share with you.”
