Have you seen our Whales Tail?

Whale Tales is a free, family-friendly public art trail celebrating Aotearoa, art, and marine conservation – and you’re invited!

We are very excited to announce our sponsorship of a Whales Tail as part of the WWF Whale Tales 2022 project - an immersive art experience celebrating Aotearoa marine conservation.

Whales Tales features 80 massive (1.8 m tall) whale tail sculptures that have been turned into a bespoke piece of art by well-known and emerging kiwi artists including Otis Frizzell, Weta Workshop, Cora-Allan Wickliffe, and Jeff Thomson. The tails - inspired by the endangered Bryde’s whale – will tell the “tales” of our moana and how we all have a part to play for a healthy ocean.

Check out the trail map here, download the free Whale Tales app from the App store or Google Play to navigate the trail, enter the 4 digit codes to unlock offers from sponsors, and mark key milestones along the way as you ‘collect’ the tails.

When you visit our sponsored tail in the Pukekohe Town Square, scan the QR or enter the code in the app to be in to win one of 5 x $100 vouchers to the Pukekohe business of your choice!

When the trail ends the large tails will be auctioned to raise money for WWF-New Zealand’s vital work to protect and restore the Hauraki Gulf.
