Description

There was a time in New Zealand's recent past, when every country town, had one or more helicopters based there involved with wild venison recovery to feed a growing export trade. As the wild deer population was reduced and deer farming became widespread, helicopter recovery operations slowly ceased in most locations. Fiordland and South Westland today remain the only areas with full-time venison recovery helicopters still flying. Professional photographer Olivia Page was given the opportunity to record WARO (wild animal recovery operations) in Fiordland over the summer of 2010-2011, the result was 7000 images, the best of which are shown in this book, recording an industry which is going through change and may soon be gone forever. A bonus DVD is included, with documentary footage of Dick Deaker and Jeff Carter, on venison recovery missions in Fiordland. Shot by award winning filmmaker Marion Poizeau.
