🔍🐬A Hector’s dolphin was spotted on Friday morning in Mahurangi Harbour off the north-east coast of Auckland, and then again in Whangarei Harbour on Sunday.

Hector’s are known to be found in the Bay of Plenty on occasion but one turning up on the east coast of Tamaki-Makaurau and in Whangarei is quite unusual.

We are urging the public to report any more sightings so that we can attempt to take a small skin biopsy to confirm its species.

Remember: rounded fin, call it in!

Report to the DOC hotline 0800 DOC HOT with as much of the following information as possible:
• Date/time of sighting
• GPS coordinates
• Approximate time spent with the animal
• Direction of travel the animal is moving
• Description of the location and the activity of the animal

That should scare it off.

Respect the Rāhui. Close the gaps.

But the commercial guys started scalloping on 31 July! All the beds will be cleaned out by now! You need to manage the commercial fishery better they don’t care about sustainability they just care about the dollars earned!

Why would they leave those two areas open?!

Good.

There is much to be hopeful for about the future of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park. This school of haku, kingfish, represents progress we have witnessed over the past two and a half years which will, in time, lead to a healthier Gulf. There is such great mahi being done by so many that it takes 3 images to capture it all so do scroll through. Mauriora!
