According to the latest estimate, there are only 54 māui dolphins remaining. Only found on the North Island's west coast, māui dolphins are threatened by fishing pressures, like trawling and gill nets, and diseases, like toxoplasmosis. 

Louis talked to University of Otago's Liz Slooten and Sea Shepherd's Michael Lawry about the species' current status, the major threats, and what needs to be done to save them.
