Name: 
United States of America Embassy New Zealand
Description: 

The United States of America Embassy New Zealand (US Embassy) in Wellington, along with the Consulate General in Auckland, provides assistance to American citizens in New Zealand.

After the 22 February 2011 earthquake, the US Embassy responded with two goals in mind: to locate and assist American citizens in distress, and to mobilize US Government resources to assist local authorities in preserving life and addressing urgent humanitarian needs.

This collection holds photographs, videos, press releases, and blog posts about the US Embassy's involvement in the Canterbury earthquakes, and the achievement of these two goals.
