Whale rescue course in Wellington.

New Zealand is the whale stranding capital of the world. Each year, hundreds of whales and dolphins strand on our shores. Whilst some are sick or injured, others are healthy and just need a helping hand back out to sea.

Each year, hundreds of whales and dolphins strand on our shores. Whilst some are sick or injured, others are healthy and just need a helping hand back out to sea. But saving whales isn't as easy as it looks and successful rescue often depends on properly trained volunteers. That's where you come in.

Project Jonah are running two Marine Mammal Medic training courses in Wellington next weekend. Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November.

Learn the skills needed to look after whales and dolphins when they strand and make a real difference. Wellington is a key region to support the mass strandings that happen on an almost annual basis at Farewell Spit. Once trained you'll be added to our national callout list. That means that when a stranding occurs your lifesaving skills can be called upon.
