New Zealand’s first nationwide whale count will get underway this weekend.

The first Whale census will run from 9.30am until 3.30pm on Saturday, with help from volunteers all over the country.

The plan is to create a baseline of how many marine mammals were spotted along the coastline on one day, so they could compare numbers in future years.

Rose said some marine scientists and students were taking part. However, people are able to offer their help.

People can register for the census and get survey forms via the Cetacean Spotting NZ Facebook page.
