New Zealand is a collection of approximately 600 islands in the Pacific Ocean. Due to its remoteness, New Zealand was one of the last landmasses settled by humans. As a result, the islands developed a distinct form of plant and animal life unlike any other. New Zealand’s varied topography has served as the backdrop for several movies, including the Lord of the Rings series, Avatar, and The Last Samurai. New Zealand also has an extremely vibrant arts and entertainment scene, much of which is influenced by the islands’ indigenous people, the Māori.
