This view of the rugged coastline of Stewart Island illustrates the canopy cover extending virtually to the mean high tideline. The forest provides habitat for a wide diversity of understory shrub, fern and herbaceous flora as well as considerable birdlife.
This coastal grassland and forest provides breeding habitat for the Yellow-eyed Penguin and Little Blue Penguin. Active reforestation work is ongoing to improve the habitat which has been overgrazed and somewhat deforested over the last millennium.
