Help Us Save the World’s most Endangered Dolphin

Maui’s dolphin is the world’s smallest and rarest subspecies of dolphin; it is estimated only 55 are left. A subspecies of Hector’s dolphin, and only found on a small stretch of New Zealand’s South Island, their survival is threatened. Living only a few miles off the coast, they are exposed to sand mining, fishing trawl nets, and a wide variety of pollutants and contaminants. 

Their females don’t begin breeding until they’re seven to nine years old and only give birth to one calf every two to four years. Potential population growth is slow and makes their immediate recovery critical.

Stand with organizations like the World Wildlife Fund and urge New Zealand’s Prime Minister, John Key, to protect these precious creatures from extinction!
