It’s National Volunteer Week (15-21 June 2014) and we want to honour all those who volunteer for conservation.
Today’s photo of the week is of volunteers tending to a pod of stranded pilot whales at Puponga on Farewell Spit.
The photo is courtesy of the voluntary organisation Project Jonah New Zealand.
“Our strength comes from our volunteers; everyday Kiwis that give up their time to help marine mammals through our rescue, action and protection programs. Whether they’re picking up litter on beaches or getting hands on in rescuing stranded whales, they’re out there helping.” ~ Project Jonah
