Our submission to the Māui and Hector’s dolphin consultation

Updated: Dec 15, 2021


We’ve finished our submission to the Government on the Māui and Hector’s dolphin threat management plan.

Read our submission here.

Submissions close on Monday 19 August at 5 pm.

In our submission, we have focussed only on the seabed mining aspect of the consultation document, including the issues around prospecting and exploration. There’s several options for your involvement.

  • use our submission as a guide – and email your feedback to dolphintmp@doc.govt.nz

  • Or post your written submissions to: Consultation: Hector’s and Māui Dolphin Threat Management Plan Department of Conservation P O Box 10420 Wellington 6143

  • Or if you don’t have time, go to the Greenpeace website and fill out their form. http://greenpeace.nz/maui-hector-submissions

Our submission focuses only on the seabed mining aspect, and not on the wider issues. But the Whaingaroa Environment Centre has a great guide for submissions if you want to include the other threats to our tiny dolphins.
