Save The Maui's Dolphin!
Why is it important
The world's smallest dolphin - the Maui's - needs our help. A new study has just found that there are only 55 adult dolphins left, making it one of the most critically endangered marine species in the world. It lives exclusively off the coast of New Zealand, a nation which markets itself as "100% Pure" - and yet the government is dragging its feet in protecting the dolphin.
Fishing nets in the area continue to kill these magnificent dolphins, with a crucial female killed in nets as recently as January. But an even greater threat looms. Mineral extraction company TTR have recently completed tests to mine the seabed of the Maui's dolphin habitat for iron ore. Word is they like what they've found and will apply for a mining license by August. If granted this would almost certainly be the end of this playful, highly intelligent creature.
In the face of growing outrage, the government has announced a public consultation about protecting the dolphin. But while they talk, dolphins are dying. Prime Minister John Key can stop this assault on nature by immediately banning all gill net and trawler fishing and declining all licenses for seabed mining in the Maui's dolphin habitat. Let’s ask him to live up to New Zealand's "100% Pure" credentials and act now to bring this species back from the brink of extinction

I came into this thread with the intention of making a "world's smallest violin" joke but now I feel bad. Thanks world's smallest dolphin.
Seconded. This is already a wall of text most people won't really read; the purple makes it essentially unreadable.
yeah sorry about that. >_/p>
You can still edit it.
So Zandy, you ever get a boyfriend with a functional penis? And how about showing us some of your professional level animations.
She'd show us but her psychotic cat pissed in them.
These sound like humorous references.
Functional peni' are overrated
Dat purple text....
Is this the plot for the next James Cameron Avatar Film?
Did you watch Whale Rider last night? Maybe these dolphins should learn to breed faster. I think I'll start a counter campaign to stuff kakapos in the popotos and be rid of them.
Actually, what animal is there on that North Island worth keeping?
Animal species die off all the time. Over 99% of the species of life that have existed on this planet are now extinct.
So... why is it important?
