OMG! There is no reason for any dolphins to become extinct in this day & age, with all the knowledge that we have, if more people could just see how valuable & important they are!

"Dr Maas said with so much at stake, she hoped the Government would demonstrate the same commitment to the threatened dolphins as it had in fighting the extinction of whales at the International Whaling Commission."

noted. so beautiful, I wish they could have their natural habitats back, without ships and everything ruining what they had to themselves for so long.

Extremely tragic news. Chances of recovery are slim to none for the Maui dolphins with only 111 of them left. That is not enough genetic diversity for a healthy gene pool. My heart is breaking.

Is someone adept at creating petitions? Please, if you can write one, attach a link to this thread so we can all sign it.

Check out this wonderful story - it shows conclusively that dolphins are more deserving of inheriting this earth than any of us humans who are causing their extinction:

What a shameful thing that we are destroying the saviors.

Great article. I hope that pressure on New Zealand to work hard for their dolphins and porpoises safety will work. It must, they're supposed to want to make a difference.

Very worrying article. A big petition sounds the way to go. Maybe someone down in NZ could get the correct contact details as to those people /institutions it should be sent to and set one up swiftly

Here is a link about the situation w/the Maui dolphins. I was researching a vacation to Maui last yr. and found out why dolphin watching in a boat & swimming w/them is literally killing them. Here's the link:

I've never seen a dolphin like this before not even in a book. They should be saved!
