New Zealand’s critically endangered Maui's dolphin is the world's smallest dolphin and it’s on the brink of extinction. The tiny dolphins are found only in New Zealand coastal waters and are under threat from net fishing and oil exploration and drilling. The most recent population estimate indicates that only about 55 adult dolphins remain. Seismic testing for oil drilling is happening right now hear their habitat.
Help us urge the New Zealand Govt to give them the proper protection they deserve.

Banners on the Beach – Say “No” To Deep See Oil

Saturday, 23/11/2013, 12 noon

New Zealand

 

The Oil Free Seas flotilla is out at the drill site off the coast of Raglan taking a stand against risky exploratory deep sea oil drilling. We can’t leave them to confront Texan oil giant Anadarko alone!

And that’s where YOU come in. This is something that affects us all – so we need to stand together and draw a line in the sand to say “Stop Deep Sea Oil” so loudly that they’ll hear us in Texas!
