Day #4: Activity 1 - Winter Learning Journey (Swimming with the Sharks )


Winter Learning Journey


INSTRUCTIONS:

Activity 1: When you arrive in the south island, Curious Kiwi rents a shuttle van and drives your group from Picton (the town where the ferry dropped you off) to a beautiful beach on the opposite side of the island. The beach area is called Golden Bay and, at one end of the bay, is a stunning area called Farewell Spit.

Farewell Spit has been in the news recently as a number of whales accidentally swam into the spit and became stuck on the beach. They were unable to swim back to the ocean because the water was too shallow. Many local people tried to save the ‘beached’ whales. Please follow this Farewell Spit link to learn more about what happened. On your blog, describe what the local people did to try and save the beached whales.

  1. Hi Lusia. Great blogpost. It's sad to hear Whales dying from things like this. Hopefully what locals are doing is enough to save them. Keep up the great work.
