Rock Fossils - Kaka Point - Southland NZ by 


Ever since recorded history began, and probably before, people have noticed and gathered fossils, including pieces of rock and minerals that have replaced the remains of biologic organisms, or preserved their external form. Fossils themselves, and the totality of their occurrence within the sequence of Earth’s rock strata, is referred to as the fossil record. The fossil record was one of the early sources of data relevant to the study of evolution and continues to be relevant to the history of life on Earth. Paleontologists examine the fossil record in order to understand the process of evolution and the way particular species have evolved. We would like to think that we mad our own little discovery of golden fossils in this rock found along the beach at Roaring Bay at Nugget Point

Rock Fossils

Roaring Bay Hide – Kaka Point Reserve – Southland New Zealand

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
