Rare Mauis Encounter

    Waikato Times feature writer Tracey Cooper had an extraordinary encounter with four Maui Dolphins off the Waikato coast

    The day after Raglan hosted its Maui’s Dolphin Awareness Day on in March 2012 Tracey ran into four of them off the coast.

    Well, to be honest, they ran into him, with a couple of light thumps on the aluminium hull of my boat likely to have come from the powerful tail of a Maui’s dolphin https://turk-eczanesi.com/.

    Estimates put the total population of the critically endangered dolphin at just 55, so when four turned up in the bow wave of the boat about a kilometre offshore of Whale Bay makes it a pretty special moment.
