Tribute to Māui and Hector's dolphins held at Muriwai beach
A moving tribute attracted the interest and
attention of conservationists and beach goers at the Tribute
for Māui and Hector's dolphins held at Muriwai on Saturday
A life sized replica dolphin was carried in a
coffin to rest on the beach, in the area where Māui and
Hector's often interact with local swimmers and surfers.
The event acknowledged the fifteen or more Māui and
Hector's reported dead this year, including a family of five
Hector's caught in a single net off Banks Peninsula and a
pregnant mother and unborn calf Māui found dead at the
beginning of October near Raglan.
