Life in the Shallows book

Book cover: Life in the Shallows The wetlands of Aotearoa New Zealand.

I recently became aware of a new publication — Life in the Shallows The wetlands of Aotearoa New Zealand by Karen Denyer and Monica Peters:

Featuring wetlands to visit all around the country, descriptions of the rich bird, insect and plant life that can be found there, and some of the innovative ways we can protect and restore them, Life in the Shallows is a key resource for those who want to explore, understand and care for these precious places.

I was sure it would be a very interesting book and highly relevant for this part of the coast where we have several permanent and a number of ad hoc wetlands, so I suggested to the Library that they purchase it.

Today I received a reply:

The library has reviewed your suggestion today and the item will be ordered as soon as possible. A free hold will be placed on this item once it is ordered and we will contact you when it becomes available.
The reason given is: Recommendation for purchase
If you have any questions, please email us at enquiries@tetakere.org.nz
Thank you,
