In Wellington, wildlife sightings are a part of daily life, thanks to the city’s green policies and development of countless parks, nature reserves and walking tracks, Adam Bray writes for CNN. Bray recommends a few instances for “why Wellington may be the best city in the world for spotting wildlife.” He suggests hiring a kayak at Fergs Kayaks on Queens Wharf for some orca or dolphin watching. “In February, in Wellington Harbour, 100 dolphins spent a week hanging out with residents before moving back out to sea.” Bray also includes little blue penguin spotting along the south coast, Karori’s “beautiful” Zealandia sanctuary and Kapiti Island Nature Reserve.
