Hector's and Maui dolphin Threat Management Plan
Hector’s and Māui dolphins Threat Management Plan review
Dear Fishers SAVE HECTOR AND MAUI DOLPHIN SUPPORTERS,
This is to advise you know about public consultation on the plan to protect Hector’s and Māui dolphins, which has been launched today by the Minister of Conservation and the Minister of Fisheries.
These precious marine mammals are New Zealand’s taonga and we need to act now to ensure they are there for future generations.
The Department of Conservation and Fisheries New Zealand have developed a range of proposals using the best available science. We think they give us the best opportunity to save these dolphins.
We need to carefully balance these proposals against the impact they could have on people and their livelihoods. Your feedback will be critical in helping us understand this, so its important you to have your say.
The public consultation process begins today and closes at 5pm on 4 August 2019.
The best way to get an understanding of the proposals is to check out the information on our website
(https://ministryforp...-i-pdudiyd-l-r/) and have a read through the consultation document (https://ministryforprimaryindustries.cmail19.com/t/d-i-pdudiyd-l-y/) .
It includes maps showing the possible impacts of the proposed options, including the impacts on commercial and recreational fishing.
Public meetings will be scheduled during consultation, and we encourage you to attend. We are currently finalising dates for these events and they will be posted on our website.
We look forward to receiving your submissions.
