I’m still reeling over the loss of 2 New Zealand orca last week.  We have such a small population, to lose 2 females in such a small space of time is a terrible blow.  Makes me even more determined to work hard and donate more money to Orca Research Trust and Whale-Rescue, help Ingrid get out there; find out why this is happening and prevent other strandings.

Photo © Moana Matron Designs This is a photo that I am thrilled to say I took, as it is a rare species of whale that I never thought I would get to see firsthand.  The setting is Waipu Cove, Northland on a Saturday afternoon, and this gorgeous animal is a young female Southern Right Whale.  She has spent the last month or so heading north up the east coast of New Zealand and I was lucky enough to catch up with her and take this treasured photo on my Canon Powershot.

One of my favorite photos ever. Taken by a photographer for the New Zealand Herald at the Spirits Bay pilot whale stranding a few years ago. This particular whale was named Tohe by local iwi. They said he was the first on the beach and would need to be the first for release to lead his pod to safety. This isn't standard practice at rescues but happened anyway as, after 36 hours without sleep, I misheard the release signal and let him go early. An incredible experience I'll never forget.

Photo © Moana Matron Designs - A closer look a Goat Island regularly, the New Zealand leatherjacket fish.  You can see how quickly they move through the water by how blurry the background of this picture is!  Photo taken on my Canon Powershot underwater point-and-shoot whilst on a freedive to about 2 metres.  Would highly recommend this snorkel / dive spot to anyone visiting New Zealand.

I finally found the disc that Ingrid (Visser) made for me after we went out with the orca, so now all my killer whale photos are essentially coming to you in HD haha!  This beautiful New Zealand orca is Nobby, my favourite because he seems to show up every time I'm out with Ingrid on the Orca Research Trust boat. He's such a beautiful boy!
