The problem:

The solution:

The most recent population estimate indicates that only about 55 adult dolphins remain. Maui’s dolphins are particularly vulnerable to gill nets, set nets and trawling which can entangle them and cause drowning. While nets have been forbidden in some areas there are many places where Maui’s dolphins are still threatened by them.

Extending their marine mammal sanctuary refuge to cover the dolphin's full habitat range; Banning net fishing, seabed mining, petroleum exploration and drilling from within the sanctuary; Banning seismic testing from within 20 nautical miles of the sanctuary's boundary.

Mauis dolphins are the smallest and rarest in the world. Best estimates show there are only about 63 left, and even catching a glimpse of one is rare.

Sign the petition to demand that the NZ Government gives the Maui dolphin proper protection from net fishing, mining and oil exploration activities including seismic testing.
