Check out the Whale Song Information Centre display at Coastlands which opened this week
This is located opposite "Tank" Juice Bar in the food area next to PaperPlus and is an open to view public display presented by the Whale Song Charitable Trust.
This is an amazing project that will not require any Ratepayer Funds. Correct, you as a ratepayer are not being asked to contribute through your rates. The Whale Song Charitable Trust are making no funding requests of Council except to help progress the project through the resource consent process.
This project will be funded by private donors, sponsorships and arts grants.
Want to donate, contact the trust or pop in and visit the display in the mall.
