The Poor Knights Islands became the focus of a national campaign to protect a marine area during of that early 1970s `environmental era'' Regarded as having perhaps the most bio-diverse assemblage of marine organism in New Zealand, the community was unanimous in wanting it protec...ted but there was disagreement over what form it should take. This led to community division and debate that extended for a further 27 years until it became a totally protected marine environment in 1998. The book begins with a little of the history of the islands and values of the surrounding marine area before moving to the core of the story - about the people and issues during the path to total protection. It provides tells of changes and management actions that have occurred. It contains the recollections of 20 `old timers', some 50 short interest stories, 100 photos and 10 maps, to assist the understanding of this currently undocumented account of New Zealand's community driven, conservation history. The appendices provide lists of the people and organisation involved in the protection debate, reserve management, media coverage, legislative actions and the fish species recorded in the reserve.
