Book of the Week: 13 December 2010 – 19 December 2010

Moko the Dolphin

by Andrea Skuse

Gisborne Author Andrea Skuse began writing after Moko the friendly bottlenose dolphin arrived at Mahia during Easter 2007 where he established himself as Mahia’s major attraction.

For three years, the playful teenage dolphin was a familiar sight around our Gisborne beaches where he swam among the beach-goers and stole balls and surfboards.

As well as a story covering some of the highlights of Moko’s time on the East Coast, the book has a foreword by the Department of Conservation who kept an eye on Moko during his time here.

Moko passed away on a beach on Matakana Island in July 2010.
