Orca pod in Hau­raki Gulf

Otago Daily Times - - GENERAL -

Auck­land: A pod of five orca treated to sight­seers to a ‘‘very spe­cial’’ en­counter on the Hau­raki Gulf on Sun­day.

The pod of two calves, two fe­males and a male spent about 20 min­utes around the tour group with Auck­land Whale and Dol­phin Sa­fari.

The pod spent the ma­jor­ity of their time for­ag­ing, but came over to the boat.

Ac­cord­ing to the Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion, New Zealand is home to an es­ti­mated 150­200 orca. — NZME
