Akaroa attractions - Liz and Steeve

Professors at the University of Otago, Liz Slooten and her partner Steeve Dawson have studied the Hector and Maui dolphins, two endemic species threatened with extinction, for over 25 years. Liz and Steeve are considered as the best New Zealand specialists in conservation of marine mammals. The pair has succeeded in putting in place effective measures for the conservation of this rare species, the most imortant of them is the creation of a marine sanctuary around Banks Peninsula. We always say "Hi" when we see them out on the water. :-)
