New Zealand's Sub-Antarctic Islands lie far to the south of Stewart Island and are 5 groups of uninhabited and windswept islands of the Southern Ocean. A hazard in the days of sailing ships, the islands are now wildlife preserves, which, due to their isolation, are only visited occasionally, normally by scientists or conservation workers.
