On November 14, 2016 two minutes past midnight in the South Island of New Zealand, the Kaikoura region was shaken violently by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake.
The coast line rose up to 2.5m leaving thousands of Paua and shellfish exposed to the elements with no where to go.
The Kaimoana (sea food) from this area is precious to all New Zealanders. Without any help the exposed Paua and shellfish would die.
A voluntary group called The Kaikoura Paua Relocation and Relief Project was created to save the Kaimoana. Aerial Imagery worked with the relief crew to document the efforts made.
