The Mauis dolphin, the worlds smallest and scarcest sub-species, is found only in shallow waters off the North Island of New Zealand. It is listed as critically endangered and scientists from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) have called for urgent action to prevent extinction, including a ban on fishing in the dolphins habitat. While the government has taken some steps, environmentalists say it has not gone far enough due to fears of damaging the fishing industry, making a boycott the only way they can get their message across. Weve exhausted all other avenues of making progress, Barbara Maas, an endangered species specialist with conservation group NABU International, said. Weve repeatedly argued the scientific merits of the case and been ignored. So if its all about money, as has become apparent, then we need to change the economic landscape in order to make them reconsider. Ms Maas said a seafood boycott would lead to customers questioning the 100 per cent pure branding that New Zealand prides itself on. The shame of this is that it will besmirch the environmental reputation of the country and once you start that process its difficult to turn it off, she said. It would have been simpler and easier and cheaper to sort this out when the international scientific community raised the issue with New Zea land and said it needed to take action urgently. New Zealands seafood exports are worth more than NZ$1.5 billion ($1.2 billion) a year, according to official data, with China, Australia the European Union and US the largest markets. Ms Maas said more than 100 conservation groups worldwide have signed up to support the boycott.
