"Lying off the South-west Cape of Stewart Island, just on the Antarctic side of the 47th parallel, this southerly outpost of New Zealand - a veritable virgin treasure - afforded us a unique opportunity of investigating wild life as it exists unspoiled by the interference or apathy of man and his introduced pests. Sixty miles of lonely, boisterous, treacherous seas isolated us from the nearest living beings."
