  Kia-Ora, Talofa, Hello. Welcome to the official Instagram page of the U.S. Embassy in Wellington, New Zealand.

While docked at Lyttelton, crew members of the @uscg Cutter Polar Star assisted the @nzdefenceforce and the @newzealandpolice throughout the night in providing assistance as needed in cordoned areas affected by the recent fire in the Christchurch Port Hills.

Over 100 people came to @creativehq this morning (along with a large crowd watching via livestream down in Christchurch) to listen to, and get their questions answered from, US serial entrepreneur Steve Blank. Steve is recognized for starting the Lean startup movement with the development of the Customer Development method that launched the Lean Startup movement, a methodology which recognized that startups are not smaller versions of large companies, but require their own set of processes and tools to be successful. #startup #leanstartup #entrepreneur #creativehq #wellington

🐣🐣🐣Meet Hari, Kake and Kaha our three male brown kiwi chicks at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute! They are the first kiwi chicks to hatch from eggs laid and incubated at SCBI. The kiwi all have Maori names since the species is sacred to the Maori people of New Zealand. Hari translates to “joy.” Kake was named by animal keepers and his name is translated as “to overcome.”Kaha was named by New Zealand’s Ambassador to the United States, Tim Groser, and his name translates to “strong.” #WeSaveSpecies
