Tohora: The Southern Right Whale by Ned Barraud

Published by Potton & Burton


A moving story of the near extinction and then revival of one of New Zealand’s magnificent marine mammals, the southern right whale. Once, the mighty tohora, or southern right whale, was a common sight in winter off the coast of Aotearoa. But it proved to be an easy target for the 19th-century whalers, and was soon driven to the edge of extinction. In the 20th century, however, it became a protected species, and once commercial whaling was virtually stopped, the souther right whale made a comeback.

Ned Barraud recounts this moving story in this beautifully illustrated book, a heartening and optimistic tale for every New Zealand child.
