Act now to save the New Zealand-based Maui's dolphin from extinction - the NZ government is shamefully inadequate in its support...

Urgent action is again needed: Your help is needed too

New Zealand's critically endangered Maui's dolphin is the world's smallest and rarest marine dolphins and is in real danger of extinction. Once it is gone it is gone forever. Local fisherman can look elsewhere for their fishstocks.

Only 55 adult dolphins now remain alive. Despite over 70,000 submissions in favour of better protection, the John Key-led New Zealand government is again shamefully inadequate. They appear to be more supportive of local fisherman.
