Abstract

The Snares, a group of seven granitic islands about 200 kilometres from New Zealand, were first sighted by George Vancouver in 1791. The University of Canterbury constructed a ‘biological research station’ on Main Island in the 1960s and some of the resultant publications are among the last expedition reports in the collection. The author of this article, John Warham (1919-2010), led several expeditions to the archipelago. Warham was primarily an ornithologist who lectured on zoology at the University of Canterbury and used the trips as learning and research experiences for his students. He notes in this article how seal numbers were slowly recovering from the sealing boom of the early 19th century.
