On March 2nd, nearly 300 gathered after the 8th annual Maui’s Dolphin Day at Te Kopua Domain in Raglan to “Stand Up & Be Counted”, an aerial photograph taken by Droidworx Aeronavix, Ltd.
Concerned members of the community and from afar joined to participate in this massive “human Maui’s Dolphin” representing a powerful message in itself intended for the New Zealand government. This comes with anticipation of the Threat Management Plan (TMP)* for the critically endangered last 55 Maui’s Dolphins.
