The Nature Photography Society of New Zealand is saddened by the tragic loss at sea in Kaikoura during a trip by society members that took the lives of 5 of our members.
Investigations are continuing by Maritime NZ as to what caused the vessel to capsize and it is not appropriate for the Society to comment further.
In the meantime, our thoughts are with the families of those members of the society who have lost their lives.
Richard Hensby Vice President Nature Photography Society of New Zealand.
