New Zealand Earthquake (November, 2016) affects seal breeding area.
Massive landslides caused by this week’s earthquakes appear to have wiped out the breeding ground along the coast, just weeks before the start of pupping season.
“The majority of that breeding colony is completely gone,” Department of Conservation (DOC) ranger Mike Morrissey said.
Naturally, Trish and I are concerned about the impact of this quake on humans. We wish all life to recover and continue in this beautiful place called New Zealand.
