This month, making a splash on our front page (and around Tāmaki Makaurau) are whale tails, part of an incredible immersive public art trail, which celebrates Aotearoa, art, and marine conservation. We take a look at this wonderful initiative by WWF-NZ and Wild in Art.
Eighty tail sculptures designed by 80 artists, dot around Auckland’s streets, parks, and open spaces. These sculptures tell stories of a healthy ocean inspired by the Bryde’s (pronounced broo-dus) whale, a Hauraki Gulf resident – one of the only three places in the world to have a resident, year-round population.
Find out more about this wonderful initiative in our cover story this month.
Also, don’t forget there’s still time to participate in the Fish ‘N Chicks Tournament at the Tauranga Sport Fishing Club. The deadline to submit entries is 8 February, and the event will take place on 11 and 12 February.
Meanwhile, due to the red traffic light setting, the Sika Show has been postponed to 29 and 30 October.
This month, we’re also giving readers a chance to win a pair of comfy Steel Blue boots and a Dometic portable car fridge so don’t forget to check out our competitions page.
