2009, December 27, Pilot whales, Coromandel ››

A call for volunteers to help stranded whales, the day after Christmas in one of New Zealand’s top holiday spots, resulted in 100’s of people turning up to help a large group of pilot whales.  It is possible this stranding was triggered by a pregnant whale having trouble giving birth as less than one hour after the whales were rescued a newborn calf was sighted by Whale Rescue team members.
