Maui's dolphins videos
Watch the video of Maui's dolphins seen during a Department of Conservation (DOC) survey in March 2012. The dolphins were sighted off the West Coast of the North Island between Raglan and the Manukau Heads.
Alongshore surveys such as this help us to understand more about the species. The surveys provide information on the distribution of dolphins within their known range. We can also determine how successfully the dolphins are breeding based on the presence or absence of juvenile within the pods.
