Day #4: Activity 1 - Winter Learning Journey (Swimming with the Sharks )

Activity 1: When you arrive in the south island, Curious Kiwi rents a shuttle van and drives your group from Picton (the town where the ferry dropped you off) to a beautiful beach on the opposite side of the island. The beach area is called Golden Bay and, at one end of the Bay, is a stunning area called Farewell Spit.

Farewell Spit has been in the news recently as a number of whales accidentally swam into the spit and became stuck on the beach. They were unable to swim back to the ocean because the water was too shallow. Many local people tried to save the ‘beached’ whales. Please follow this Farewell Spit link to learn more about what happened. On your blog, describe what the local people did to try and save the beached whales.

What the Local People did:
They local people helped the Whales by putting most of them back in the ocean. They helped trapped Whales back on the beach. Locals were appalled how so many were left to die. Also, they wanted to help them because they cared for these amazing sea creatures.

  1. Hi Brooke,

    Thank you so much for sharing your summary about the whales at Farewell Spit. How did you feel learning about what happened to them? I was so devastated seeing them suffer. It was so nice to see the community come together and help but like you said some were left to die. What a tragedy.

    I look forward to reading your interesting facts Brooke. You are doing so well.

    Kia Kaha,
