|Spirits Bay/Kapowairua [New Zealand, 2010]|
After a night and day in the
lagoon, a fleet of trucks has been assembled at remote Spirits Bay and
it's time for the toughest part of the rescue - transferring the animals
50km by road to the calm waters of Rarawa Beach. Here a team of volunteers
and Department of Conservation staff guide a whale to the far end of the
lagoon, where a digger waits to hoist it onto a truck.
