This whale tail will surface at Matakana Cinemas this week as part of an Auckland-wide public art trail.
The Matakana tail was decorated by Matakana Primary School students and sponsored by Plume.
It is one of 80 Pēpi (mini tail sculptures), as well as 80 Big Broos (large tail sculptures), being displayed in streets, parks and open spaces around Auckland.
The project is to raise awareness of the vital work World Wildlife Fund-NZ does looking after Aotearoa’s ocean, including the Hauraki Gulf and its endangered resident, the Bryde’s whale.
The tail above will be at the cinema until the end of next month. To find the trail map, go to: https://whaletales2022.org/event/whale-tales-art-trail/
