Day 4: Swimming with the Sharks Bonus Activity

Winter Learning Journey (100% Pure New Zealand)

Bonus Activity: Hector’s dolphins are a very special native animal found only in New Zealand. They are the smallest dolphin in the world measuring 1.5 metres long and they are quite rare. Sadly, many Hector’s dolphins are killed every year when they get caught in large fishing nets and can’t escape. Some people have argued that fishermen shouldn’t be allowed to fish in Farewell Spit in order to protect the dolphins living there. What do you think? On your blog, tell us whether you think that fishing in Farewell Spit should be banned (stopped).

My Opinion:
I think that fishing at Farewell Spit should be banned because there aren't that many dolphins in the world left. I think we should just leave them alone because they could become extinct soon and also, what about the things that dolphins prey on?

  1. Kia Ora Falakiko,

    Thank you for sharing your review about the Hector dolphins. You are absolutely right, there aren't many dolphins around now which is very sad. I appreciate that you have given your own personal opinion to complete Day 4 bonus activity.

    Keep up the good work Falakiko!
