Chronicles of Illusions

When the Yangtze River dolphin went extinct people all over the world were shocked and dismayed – but now New Zealand could become the first country to oversee the extinction of a marine dolphin in over 50 years.

This year, both the International Whaling Commission and the World Conservation Congress urged the New Zealand Government to take immediate measures to protect Maui’s dolphin.

A group of New Zealand experts identified bycatch in fishing nets as the key threat to the dolphins, and provided advice on management for the area in which they are found.

The measures in place so far, and the current proposal by the Ministry of Primary Industries, fall far short of these expert recommendations. [sourced from Greenpeace‘s petition site]

  1. Thank you for reblogging this. It breaks my heart that New Zealand [a country I love] would allow this to happen. The word needs to be gotten out all across the globe so that they know their behaviour is not acceptable.

  2. Such a beautiful creature, thank you for raising awareness. ~ Kat
