There are only around 57 of these tiny dolphins left in the world, living around the coast of New Zealand. We have been campaigning to keep them safe by calling on the New Zealand government to remove fishing nets from their habitat. You can read more about the Māui dolphin, the issues they face and how WDC has been campaigning to help protect them by clicking here.

Entries close at midday BST on Friday 11th October.

Good luck!
