Let the Good Times Roll, but Stay Disciplined
In early February this year, New Zealand experienced one of the worst whale stranding’s in history.
Collectively, more than 600 pilot whales beached themselves in two separate mass stranding’s along a 3
mile stretch of coastline on Farewell Spit, a thin arc of sand at the northern tip of the South Island. Conservation workers and volunteers braved challenging conditions to help refloat the surviving animals, yet despite their desperate rescue efforts, hundreds of them died. Such mass stranding’s of
cetaceans are fairly common on beaches in many parts of the world, yet few people had seen one of this scope before – it was New Zealand’s third-largest on record.
