Just on $520,000 has been raised so far for the Hauraki Gulf’s endangered Bryde’s Whales after a Harcourts auction with a difference attracted buyers from across New Zealand and overseas. You may have seen the Pukekohe tail on display near the Possum Bourne memorial. Harcourts business owners donated large tails to artists to turn into masterpieces. These were later auctioned off. All 41 lots were sold under the hammer in central Auckland.
