Through traditional Māori knowledge and the work and experience of our leading scientists, it explores the creation, diversity, vulnerability and cultural values of our swamps, fens, lakes, estuaries and bogs. Information about a range of wetlands to visit is also included. Life in the Shallows shows how the growing collaboration of mātauranga Māori, citizen science and Western science has the potential to significantly improve our understanding and protection of these important and special places.
