Five boats have been brought from a shallow aisle near Wellington for a seemingly stressful orca pod shepherd.
Ian Angus, manager of the Department of Conservation Marine Species, said the orca was removed from the Poitahnoi Inlet because of the danger of being called and the threat to their well-being. The first was there for four days.
“We are particularly concerned about the well-being of older men, Orca, because their dorsal fin is dropping, which is a sign that it can be emphasized,” Angus said.
“This technique of slowly stealing marine mammals with boats has been used successfully in the past in New Zealand and abroad.”
* Cars and pedestrians stopped, a violation notice was issued as people traveled to see the orc pod.
* Orca lives in the harbor north of Wellington, a police checkpoint blocking rubber knuckles.
* Orcas pod in Poryava port.
He said that the safety of the people and Orca would be closely monitored.
“The shepherd may not be working for the first time, and in the next day or two we will be able to work with Orca, depending on the situation.”
“It’s not a process we often do, but, given our concern for the well-being of Orca and the threat of Orca, we’ve decided to strike a balance between us and their well-being and safety.” It should try to interfere in the interests. “
The Covid 19 protocol will be followed.
DoC staff, along with Ngāti Toa iwi and members of Project Jonah, monitored the pods on Tuesday and, with a marine mammal medicine, went out to check the pods.
People are reminded that only necessary travel is allowed under Alert Level 4 and people should not go to this area to see Orca. DOC staff is working with police to meet Alert Level 4 requirements.
