Help Save the World’s Smallest Marine Dolphin -- Only 55 Remaining!
3,840 people took a pledge
The world's rarest and smallest marine dolphin is at risk of extinction. Only an estimated 55 Maui's dolphins over the age of one remain on the planet, all living along a small stretch of New Zealand's coast.

While their survival is threatened by sand mining and oil and gas exploration, the greatest immediate threat is certain types of fishing nets used throughout their coastal habitat. Living close to shore, Maui's dolphins can easily become entangled in these nets and drown. With so few remaining, each unnecessary death is a critical one.
Urge New Zealand Prime Minister John Key to protect the last remaining Maui's dolphins by prohibiting dangerous fishing gear from their habitat, safeguarding the region from sand mining and the threat of oil and gas exploration, and establishing a protected ocean corridor.
