Celebrating Cetaceans

The candidate site, Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand, have actively been working towards their full WHS status. They currently have plans to build a life-sized replica of a Humpback Whale named Harry. The replica will begin construction in April 2018 nearby the port with an aim to launch in August. Harry will be visible from the ferry as visitors arrive, with the aim that it will help the Sounds to tell it’s 100+ year whale history and spread a global conservation message.
