A flotilla of Greenpeace protesters is trying to disrupt the planned oil drill off the coast of New Zealand.
A huge ship called the Noble Bob Douglas is a specially designed drilling ship which is in position off the Taranaki coast.
The plan is to drill into the ocean floor to see if there is sufficient oil to start an oil well.
Many people are unhappy about the proposed drilling so close to New Zealand.
They are concerned about the chance of a maritime disater if there is an oil leak.
Five boats are protesting around the drill boat and staying beyond a 500-metre exclusion area.
But one vessel, called theVega, is breaking the law and is only about hundred metres from drilling ship.
