Maui’s dolphins need more protection, not more seismic surveying
“We need to be doing more to save the last 55 Maui’s dolphins, not exposing them to further risks from seismic surveying for oil exploration, said WWF-Head of Campaigns Peter Hardstaff.
“The Government’s failure to fully protect Maui’s dolphins from net-fishing across their range is already putting them at risk of extinction, and this situation is made worse by opening up their habitat to seismic surveying and a greater chance of oil spills.
“WWF urges New Zealanders to let the Government know they want greater protection for Maui’s by signing our petition to save the last 55 Maui’s dolphins.”
“With people’s help we can make a difference and make New Zealand’s leaders listen, said Mr Hardstaff.
