Image result for maui dolphinThere are fears a decision to allow oil drilling off the Taranaki coast could spill disaster for New Zealand's rare Maui dolphins. 35% of the dolphins habitat is to be opened up to exploration and Green Party MP Gareth Hughes says it's a reckless move. Mr Hughes says a move away from the finite resource of fossil fuels needs to be made. Only 63 Maui dolphins remain in the wild.
