Episode Summary

Hector's Dolphins
The rarest and smallest of all the world's marine dolphins exist in New Zealand: In the North Island the Maui's dolphin, and in the South, the Hector's. And the single, greatest threat to the survival of the remaining 7,000 dolphins is entirely of man's making: fishing. The use of gill nets, a wall of death for everything caught in it, has caused the New Zealand government to introduce a ban in order to save the Hector's dolphin. However, the fishing industry are fighting this decision, claiming it will ruin their industry. Australian conservation team Aleisha Caruso and Ashleigh Young travel to New Zealand to hold a demonstration in support of the government, and meet scientists working day and night to protect the dolphins.moreless
