Did you know that Lower Hutt actually has the largest Seal Colony in Wellington?! 😲🌊 We took a walk this week and found hundreds of seals! 😎 It's a 45 minute walk from the Wainui Coast Road car park and totally worth it! 😍 📍 Turakirae Head Scientific Reserve TIPS: - Bring warm clothes, that wind can be pretty strong! - You'll need sturdy shoes. To get closer to the seals you have to walk through heaps of rocky vegetation. This part may not be suitable for under 5's. You can still see the seals from a distance on the main path however. - Be aware the seals can be disguised and you might not notice one right in front of you, or over the next rock you climb. You need to keep your eyes open and be alert because seals can attack if you get too close. - Never get between a seal and the sea. - Dogs are not allowed. - Remember the sun sets around 5pm so keep an eye on the time to start walking back before 4pm. - Have a good Zoom camera if you want to get closer photos of the seals. #lovethehutt #lovelocalwellington #wellingtonlive #wellingtonnz #seals #wainuiomata #northisland #explorelocalnz

Wellington is fast becoming the 'sea life capital' with regular ocean visitors throughout each year. This young humpback whale was at the waterfront at lunch today. It is likely the same whale seen at the waterfront a few days ago. Humpback whales have just started their seasonal migration from Antarctica to the Pacific Islands, so Wellington could see more whales over the coming months. In 2018, Wellington saw 3 Southern Right Whales enter our harbour (first in July, then a mum & baby in August ). We also have orcas, dolphins, seals, and penguins on a regular basis. Leopard seals are less common but still seen for the past few years. Humpback whales can reach lengths of up to 15 metres. They were on the verge of extinction before NZ banned commercial whaling in 1964, and are currently classed as endangered, however with a now growing population. The humpback is a baleen whale, a filter feeder that strains shrimp-like krill, tiny fish, or plankton through its baleen plates. Teeth mark scars seen on humpbacks suggest that killer whales (orcas ) commonly attack. It is likely however, that only young calves and sick animals suffer fatal attacks.
