Whale Tales

WWF-New Zealand is thrilled to bring this truly immersive public art trail, surfacing in Tāmaki Makaurau from 24 Janaury.

Inspired by the Bryde’s whale, the trail is made up of 80 Big Broo (large) whale Tail sculptures and 80 Pēpi Pod (mini) whale Tail sculptures dotted around Auckland’s streets, parks, and open spaces to provide you with a fresh opportunity to explore Tāmaki Makaurau.  

Explore the unique and stunning whale Tail sculptures, designed by talented artists and students, and sponsored by generous businesses and organisations. Every Tail has its own tale too, so soak up the rich stories as you journey through the trail and find your favourites.

WWF-New Zealand has partnered with Wild in Art, Auckland Unlimited, and Harcourts NZ to bring the trail to the City of Sails and raise awareness of the vital work WWF-New Zealand does to look after our ocean, including our beautiful Hauraki Gulf and its endangered resident, the Bryde's Whale. There are only 135 Bryde's whales left in the Hauraki Gulf, and it is a "Nationally Critical" species. Together, we can help restore the Gulf and protect the future of this taonga species.

And the legacy of Whale Tales continues long after the trail ends. The sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for WWF-New Zealand’s vital work to protect and restore the Hauraki Gulf and the Bryde’s whales that call it home.
