Otago’s rare wildlife of seabirds and marine mammals ensures it is known as New Zealand’s ‘wildlife capital’. This flexible workshop in spring makes the most of the area’s spectacular coastal scenery and wildlife hotspots.
Join Richard Young and Dave Buckton on a four-day wildlife photography workshop showcasing the best of Otago’s wildlife and coastal scenery. You will capture the area’s exceptional wildlife includes New Zealand sea lions and fur seals, as well as a host of rare bird species, such as the Yellow-eyed penguin, Northern Royal albatross and petrel.
Our Otago Wildlife workshop includes a boat charter around the peninsula, with another highlight being a stay and dinner at the famous Larnach Castle. We will also travel North of Dunedin, to photograph the Moeraki Boulders, one of New Zealand’s most distinctive coastal landscapes and visit the Orokonui Wildlife Sanctuary.
