Bonus activity

Task: Hector’s dolphins are a very special native animal found only in New Zealand. They are the smallest dolphin in the world measuring 1.5 metres long and they are quite rare. Sadly, many Hector’s dolphins are killed every year when they get caught in large fishing nets and can’t escape. Some people have argued that fishermen shouldn’t be allowed to fish in Farewell Spit in order to protect the dolphins living there. Image result for hector dolphin Image result for hector dolphin I agree that fisherman shouldn't be allowed to fish in Farewell spit because if they continue to the dolphins that live there could soon become extinct. Lately many of these dolphins are dying from getting caught in fisherman"s nets and not being able to escape. I think that we should ban fisherman from fishing in farewell spit due to the rareness of the dolphins.

  1. Kia ora Cameo,

    It really is very sad to see what is happening to the dolphins, isn't it? It's quite tragic to see that so many innocent animals are being caught up the fishing nets and dying as a result. I agree that we must look at options for addressing this issue given the rare and unique nature of these native animals.
