Inspired by her experience of a mass pilot whale stranding at Farewell Spit, multi-medium artist Ana Aceves was moved to create a very special print. Ana has captured the emotion of the moment when the human chain watched the whales, and Tania, a Project Jonah medic, sung a karakia as the whales moved en-masse to deeper water. The artwork is titled "Kauhoe ki nga pae tawhiti atu ra e...", meaning "Swim far away to the distant horizons..." in Te reo Maori. Ana has generously donated her prints to help raise vital funds for our lifesaving work.
