Wildlife of New Zealand is an educational and fun way to find out what you need to know about our natives. If you're from abroad, planning on coming here or just another curious kiwi, you'll find something to like about our friendly locals.

New Zealand is an island nation that remained isolated for 65 million years. Our native birds, bugs, marine life and reptiles are strange, wonderful and precious.

The strange and wonderful life that evolved in New Zealand are unique, rare and varied. Discover for yourself our precious endemic and native friends that we share our beautiful country with.


WILDLIFE OF NEW ZEALAND is a personal endeavour created out of a love for our natives. There are species in New Zealand that are threatened, endangered and in some cases, critically endangered. Please, take some time to learn about our natives - they are precious, and few.

    So well put together, sharp and easy to use. Discovered things I was not aware of, needs more spiders?

    I checked... there were no hobbits. There were however a lot of neat animals and birds I'd not seen before. While I would personally make a few tweaks to the design, it's a functional app that has a lot of great detail and photographs of the wildlife you might come across in New Zealand. I could see this app being a learning tool for kids or anyone interested in NZ.
