The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) was involved in setting up the Bryde’s Whale Ship Strike group, and to this day, continue to support the protection of the Bryde’s Whales in the Hauraki Gulf by undertaking daily monitoring of ship movements. They report on this quarterly to the Hauraki Gulf Forum. Now in its 50th year, IFAW’s work spans across more than 40 countries, which is a far cry from how the organisation began. A shout out to IFAW for your valuable work. Kia kaha! Read more about IFAW on their website.
