    A look into New Zealand's most remote coastlines

    A look into New Zealand's most remote coastlines


    A team of Niwa scientists have been using drones to map areas of the South Island so inaccessible, biologists don't know what plants and animals live there.

    The team has been exploring the West Coast's Okarito and Punakaiki marine reserves for the Department of Conservation.

    Marine ecologist Leigh Tait says parts of the coast are too dangerous to map any other way.

    He says drones have opened up a whole new way to gain valuable insight into our marine environments.
