Dolphins die in nets

Date: 1/4/2002

Two more North Island Hector’s dolphins – from a population of only 100 – have been found dead in nets off the Manukau Harbour and Kariotahi Beach during February. A dismayed Conservation Minister, Sandra Lee, says the Government will discuss whether last year’s closure of the Auckland-Waikato coast to recreational and commercial set-netting was enough to save the dolphin.
