Maui’s Dolphin will be the first marine cetacean in the world to become extinct directly due to human impact-unless you help! Recent research has identified the population of Maui’s Dolphins to be within the range of 55 to 79, with the next category for these dolphins being extinction. Please join a global initiative supported by Dr. Barbara Maas of NABU International asking that the New Zealand government ban gill nets in the habitat of Maui’s and Hector’s Dolphin. The New Zealand government is currently accepting public submissions until April 11th.
