Whale Tales 2022.

Looking after our oceans.

This year we proudly sponsored WWF-New Zealand’s Whale Tales 2022 – an immersive art trail with one critical mission: to protect and restore the mauri of our ocean. 

Inspired by the endangered Hauraki Gulf resident the Bryde’s whale, the trail was made up of 80 artist designed “Big Broos” large tail sculptures and 80 “Pēpi” mini tail sculptures, designed by school aged tamariki.

Bryde's whales are in serious danger of extinction, with only around 135 left in the world. It's the mission of Whale Tales to protect them and the rest of New Zealand's beautiful marine fauna.

How our sponsorship helped.

We supported artist Ngā Toi Kauaerunga | Ngāti Awa to create our "Big Broo" Te Whānau Moana, as well as five "Pēpi" which were decorated by students at: Laingholm Primary School, Mulberry Grove School, Murrays Bay Primary School, Summit Point School and Three Kings School. 

The trail welcomed over 310,000 visitors and created an opportunity for people to celebrate New Zealand artists, learn why the Hauraki Gulf is in trouble and find out how they can help. 

In May, Whale Tales 2022 ended with a live auction where the sculptures found their forever homes. $650k was raised and will go toward WWF-New Zealand’s vital work of protecting New Zealand’s marine environment and its taonga species. 

Our support for Whale Tales 2022 helps protect our unique place in the world and the lives our people live here.
