Kristin Edge at The Norther Advocate reportedÂ on orcas, which means an immediate obligatory post for Whaleoil:
It seems locals and tourists aren’t the only ones enjoying Northland’s fabulous coastline at this time of year.
A pod of 23 orcas delighted boaties and devoted researcher Dr Ingrid Visser when they cruised into the waters at the Poor Knight Islands last week. Â
Dr Visser said the pod did about six circuits around the Poor Knights hunting for rays before splitting, with some heading to the Bay of Islands and the rest of the pod heading south towards Auckland.
If you spot an orca, Dr Visser wants to know – call 0800 SEE ORCA, 0800 733 6722.
Just don’t report me to Ingrid. Â I really don’t think she wants to know where I am.
