Details

He took a tertiary course in agriculture in New South Wales in Australia before he returned to New Zealand to teach mainly in rural schools for several years, eventually taking a position as an inspiring agricultural instructor and nature teacher. On weekends, holidays, and evenings, Richdale undertook major, meticulous, and time-consuming research on penguins, albatrosses, and several petrel species. His study of the muttonbird was achieved during prolonged solo camps on tiny Whero Island in stormy Foveaux Strait, where the winds blew straight from Antarctica.
