Māui dolphins are on the brink of extinction. New Zealand and the world need you to take action before it's too late.
Please save these beautiful animals by ending set-netting and trawling in the whole Māui habitat from the Maunganui bluff to Whanganui River mouth, and supporting fishers to change to dolphin-friendly practices. Protecting just part of their habitat is not enough.
Research by Business Economic Research Limited (BERL) shows that changing to dolphin-friendly fishing techniques will only cost around $26-$40 million. That’s a small price to pay to stop a species from being wiped out. It will also protect our international reputation for doing the right thing.
For just 0.03% of the government's annual budget, you can save Māui dolphins from their biggest threat, laying down a legacy that New Zealanders will remember. Less than 1% of the government's projected surplus could save a species.
Thanks for taking the time to consider this crucial issue.
