Auckland beachgoers are being warned to “exercise caution” at the shoreline, after an influx of jellyfish, Newshub reports. Auckland Council says a jellyfish bloom – referring to a substantial increase in jellyfish population due to a higher reproduction rate – is responsible for the sudden number of sightings along the city’s coastline. A warning is currently in place on the council’s Safeswim website, urging Aucklanders to remain vigilant. The warning directs visitors to the Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS) website, which contains information on jellyfish stings and rashes.
