In New Zealand, a family of orcas is being hunted with full force. Zookeepers hope to reunite a killer whale calf with its family. Meanwhile, hundreds of people are searching for the calf family.
Some teenagers found the killer whale, now christened, Toa, as they saw it trapped among the rocks near the town of Plimerton near Wellington. The animal sustained some minor injuries and was on its own. Meanwhile, some rescuers from the conservation department and some volunteers from the Orca Research Trust, meanwhile, are taking care of the animal in shifts.
Orcas travel about 100 to 150 kilometers per day, but they do not travel in a straight line. They may come back here tomorrow. “We don’t know,” says Dr. Ingrid Visser of the Orca Research Trust. Meanwhile, the coast is closely watched, in the hope that a school of orcas may be spotted.
If the Toa family is not found, another Orcas school will be sought to adopt the young ones.
