Day 4 Bonus Activity - Winter Learning Journey

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).

Bonus Activity: 10 points

In my own opinon I think that all fishermens should legally be banned from fishing in the farewell spit because it is very heart breaking when you hear that every year Hectors Dolphins get killed every year .

The meaning of hector dolphins getting dead is because they get caught up in these very huge nets that keeps them in there which means that they cannot escape, and I just found out that the only place that they are found in is New Zealand but not only that fishermens can fish at a lot of different places.
