WHO CAN USE THE LIBRARY

Content is available to organisations doing the mahi for our ocean environment. Simply go to our Login page and register as a user. You will receive two automated emails, one of them requesting information about your organisation. If you are a New Zealand registered charity please provide your NZ registered charity number and you are good to go. If you are an organisation that advocates for a healthy ocean but are not a NZ registered charity please provide information about your organisation and the work it does. This will help us to make sure our imagery is used for its intended purpose of ocean betterment and not commercial gain. If you are unsure please just drop us a line via the contact page or have a look at this pdf.


WHERE CAN IMAGERY BE USED

Imagery provided by Project Kahurangi is licensed for use within the ocean conservation sector. If it helps our oceans then use, use, use! Imagery is not licensed for commercial use. That means imagery can not be used for commercial gain. I.e if you are selling widgets, you can not use our imagery to help you sell widgets. However, there are exceptions - for example, if your widgets are beneficial to the ocean environment then get in touch and let's chat about a separate license agreement.

Imagery is not licensed for third-party use and it cant be on-sold, redistributed, or re-licensed. Have a look at our licensing agreement.


FEES AND FUNDING

The cost of images and footage has been kept to an absolute minimum. Revenue from sales will cover operating costs and keep the library online. The initial funding to power the project was provided by several organisations and individuals who share a passion for a healthy ocean. 


WHAT DOES ROYALTY-FREE LICENCE MEAN

Once imagery (images or footage) is purchased, an organisation can use them in their own material in perpetuity. Imagery can't be passed on to third parties, such as other organisations or sponsors for commercial use. You can check our licensing terms here.


THE SPECS

Footage on the site is 1080HD. Image sizes vary, but the width is always more than 3500px - A4 printed. 4K footage is available upon request.


WHO IS BEHIND THE PROJECT?

Project Kahurangi was conceived by photographer and videographer Gareth Cooke after noticing that many New Zealand organisations working to protect the oceans were unable to convey relevant content in their communications. As an ocean lover and strong advocate for ocean health, Gareth wanted to use his skills to help amplify the ocean conservation message. Project Kahurangi was born.



The project was made possible by several amazing organisations and individuals who care deeply about our Moana. Aroha and respect to you all.
