Today’s photo is of a pair of Māui dolphin seen off the West Coast of the North Island on a recent biopsy survey.
These dolphins were spotted between Manukau Harbour and the Waikato River.
DOC is seeking your help to look out for Māui dolphin around the North Island and to report sightings.
You can learn more about identifying and reporting Māui dolphin sightings on the DOC website, or by following our #FindingMaui updates on Twitter.
