The Rainbow Warrior has just left the sub-Antarctic Auckland Islands and Dave Hansford who is shooting for us has supplied some great images as part of a project documenting the wildlife there.

From the Arctic to sub-Antarctic the international oil industry is dangerously encroaching on ever more remote habitats to find the last drops of oil. The sub-Antarctic Auckland Islands, a World Heritage site, lie 600 kilometres south of New Zealand. These islands offer landfall in the stormy wilds of the roaring forties and furious fifties and are home to endangered New Zealand sealions, yellow eyed penguins and many majestic albatross species.

All have enough problems with disease, attacks from feral introduced animals, industrial fishing industry taking their food and trawling habitat, climate change. Yet the New Zealand Government is actively encouraging deep sea oil permits closer and closer to these remarkable islands.
