The summer heatwave has massively affected New Zealand’s glaciers.
Glacier Snowline Survey found it was one of the largest glacier meltbacks since he began the survey in 1977.
Survey founder, Trevor Chin, said “A glacier is the best climate change indicator you can use.”
New Zealand glaciers have lost 30 percent of their ice, in the 40 years that the annual snowline survey has been running.
