Whale Tales nominated for prestigious Best Arts Event

Fintastic news!

We are incredibly proud that our Whale Tales event with WWF-New Zealand has been shortlisted for Best Arts or Cultural Event in the 2023 New Zealand Events Association Awards.

Eighty tail sculptures, designed by artists and telling stories of a healthy ocean, wowed Auckland residents and visitors alike during 12 weeks of an incredible immersive public art trail celebrating Aotearoa, art, and marine conservation.

They then raised over an impressive $650,000 at auction for WWF-New Zealand and their conservation efforts for the Hauraki Gulf’s ecosystem and its resident, the Bryde’s Whale.
