Rasta helps NZ's Maui Dolphins

29 May 2012 0 Share

Ocean advocates Dave Rastovich and Lauren Hill recently travelled to Raglan, on the West Coast of New Zealand, for the annual Maui's Dolphin Day celebration and community recycled raft race. 

Maui Dolphin populations are on the edge of extinction, with a recent study finding that there are only 55 adult dolphins left, making it one of the most critically endangered marine species in the world.

You can add your voice to a petition and support the Raglan community in helping the Maui Dolphin here:

You can find out more about the environmental problems facing the dolphins and other marind creatures at the KASM (Kiwis Against Seabed Mining) website.
