Four to six months old and about 2.5 meters long, he made headlines when he was found stranded near the capital, Wellington. He broke away from his group two weeks ago under ambiguous circumstances.
Environmentalists said on Saturday (July 24) that Orca, a child named Dova who provoked public opinion after being rescued stranded on a New Zealand beach, died after a futile search to find her mother.
The four- to six-month-old baby, about 2.5 meters long, was found stranded near the Orca capital, Wellington, headlines. He broke away from his group two weeks ago under ambiguous circumstances. Hundreds of people volunteered to care for him without hindrance as the animal could not survive on its own.
Environmentalists named him Dova – a “warrior” in Mori – and fed him with a special device while trying to find his mother. Whale Rescue said his health deteriorated overnight on Friday. “The cattle did their best to help him, but they could not save him,” it said in a statement.
It is not uncommon to see groups of killer whales in Wellington Harbor, where they hunt stingrays.
