DOC (Department of Conservation) NZ is now seeking submissions on the Minister’s intention to vary the West Coast North Island Marine Mammal Sanctuary to prohibit commercial and recreational set net fishing between two and seven nautical miles offshore between Pariokariwa Point and the Waiwhakaiho River, Taranaki.
HOWEVER, conservation organizations WWF NZ, Forest & Bird, Greenpeace NZ, Origami Whales Project/Let's Face It, and Maui’s & Hector’s Dolphins Education/Action Inc, believe the current proposal is inadequate, and call for immediate protection. Submissions close 4:00 pm Thursday 10 October 2013 (NZT)
Please send submissions directly to the NZ government!
All of these options provided may be taken, with most powerful at top.

“Mining and oil activities, pollution, vessel traffic and disease constitute the remainder of the threat, on a much lower scale but still significant given the precarious state of the population.”
