Dolphins generate millions for New Zealand

A report from FHR suggests that dolphin watching made 24 million dollars for New Zealand’s tourism industry last year.

Ministry of tourism figures sourced by the New Zealand World Wildlife Fund (WWF) showed that around 103,000 people took part in dolphin watching or swimming last year. This is from the experience of swimming with dolphins and watching the animals in their natural habitat, and not in aquariums.

The WWF has been pursuing a campaign to protect Hector’s dolphins, the species that the south island tourism industry focuses on, and Maui’s dolphins.
