地理學家 Nicolas Barth 研究紐西蘭南島嘅斷層途中,當佢爬落懸崖打算聽從香港特首嘅建議去放個游水break時,竟然畀佢無意中發現到全世界最長既海蝕洞(Sea Cave)。

呢個海蝕洞叫Matainaka Cave。其實Barth 並唔係第一個去呢個洞嘅人,但無人諗過Matainaka Cave會有咩咁特別。直到Barth 同佢嘅團隊有系統咁探索同紀錄Matainaka Cave,大家先至發現呢個係全世界最長既海蝕洞。至此之前,有紀錄最長嘅海蝕洞只有四百米左右,但Matainaka Cave有超過一公里長,並且以每年四分三吋嘅速度加深。

Barth 現時除咗繼續研究Matainaka Cave之外,亦都倡議海蝕洞嘅保育工作。而家就一齊睇吓Matainaka Cave入面係點樣樣嘅!
