THE STORY:

Maui's dolphins are some of the rarest and smallest dolphins in the world. There are currently only 55 Maui's dolphins remaining in the world. These intelligent and beautiful mammals are found on the west coast of the North Islands of New Zealand. Their numbers have been decimated by gill nets and trawling nets. According to a 2012 article in the New Zealand Herald, conservationist predict that this species will become extinct if only 1 dolphin is killed every 5 years. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that these animals have a slow reproduction rate. A female does not bear her first calf until the age of 7-9 and then is capable of having 1 calf only every 2-3 years. The first steps toward the preservation of this wonderful creature have already been taken by the government of New Zealand in the form of a ban on all gill net fishing off the west coast. What is now needed is to increase public and political awareness of the urgency of this cause and to bring about the necessary will to support all agencies in its successful accomplishment. My name is Wesley, I am 12 years old and in the 6th grade at Tyee Middle School. My goal is to raise 500 hundred dollars to save these majestic animals. All monies donated will be forwarded to the NABU International Foundation for Nature which is directly involved in lobbying the government of New Zealand and funding conservation efforts to save the Maui's dolphins. Thank you very much for your generous support!
