Help us protect New Zealand dolphins

This action closed on 21 July. Thank you for your support.

What you need to do

Send an email to: [email protected]

You must include your:

  • name
  • contact details and preferences (is it OK to email you)
  • comments on the proposals

Keep it simple.  The New Zealand government just want to know if you agree with or disagree with the proposals and why.

In your email: state that you agree with the proposals to extend the West Coast North Island Marine Mammal Sanctuary and to extend the Banks Peninsula Marine Mammal Sanctuary but that to really protect the dolphins, they need to extend protection from gill-nets and trawling out to the 100 metre depth contour.
