During my early childhood years in South Africa, my sisters and I would collect “pumpkin” shells from rock pools. They became our prized possessions. When I moved to New Zealand at 10 years old, I was delighted to see the same urchin shells along local coastlines. The Māori name is Kina and they are a seafood delicacy.
