About this book

Craig Potton has partnered up with World Wildlife Fund New Zealand to save the last remaining 55 Maui’s Dolphins. For every copy of Dolphins of Aotearoa sold they will be donating NZ$ 5.00 to the WWF NZ.

The Dolphins of Aotearoa explores the ongoing relationship between humans and dolphins in New Zealand. For many people, encountering dolphins has been a profound and life-changing experience.

Dolphins of Aotearoa tells the stories of many of these remarkable encounters, featuring all of the famous dolphins, such as Pelorus Jack from the early years of the 20th century, Opo in the 1950s, Maui and more recently Moko. In addition it chronicles the ultimately doomed attempts to keep dolphins in captivity in facilities such as Marineland in Napier. Importantly, Dolphins of Aotearoa also summarises the work of the dedicated scientists and researchers who over recent decades have learnt so much about our dolphins, and whose research has given great impetus to the conservation of these remarkable creatures.

Extensively researched and lavishly illustrated with historic and contemporary photographs, and incorporating a guide to all of the dolphins of New Zealand, this is an important and much needed addition to the literature about New Zealand's marine world.

Biography

Raewyn Peart is Policy Director for the Environmental Defence Society. She has a great love of New Zealand’s coast and oceans, stemming from many childhood holidays spent sailing the Hauraki Gulf and Northland coast in her family’s small yacht. Dolphins were frequently encountered on these trips.

Raewyn trained as a lawyer and economist and initially specialised in resource management law. For the past decade Raewyn has worked for EDS and has written widely on environmental topics. Her previous book Castles in the Sands: What’s happening to the
New Zealand coast?
was well received. Raewyn continues to be a keen sailor and photographer.
