Winter Learning Journey: Day 4: Activity 1

The whales that were stranded on that beach were very unlucky and the eight whales that stranded after the first bunch were very lucky.

This is what they did to keep the whales alive 

They put towels, blankets any type of fabric on the whale but they make sure it doesn't cover the blow hole.

Then they get any type of container and then fill it up with water and keep on pouring it onto the the whale.


  1. Kia ora Bethan,

    It sounds like the people of Farewell Spit did everything they could to try and save the whales. It must have been a really stressful and traumatic experience for everyone involved...

    Have you ever seen a live whale swimming in the ocean? I had the chance to see whales swimming off the coast of our accommodation in Tonga a few years ago. They are such majestic looking creatures. I hope that they manage to stay away from the spit in the future!

    Fingers crossed...
