    Operation Pahu is Sea Shepherd's first campaign in New Zealand. It will be a long term determined effort to reduce the risk to Hector’s from illegal, unregulated, and unreported (IUU) commercial and recreational fishing from Te Waewae Bay up to the Canterbury Bight.

    Whilst at sea, we will also monitor Hector’s subpopulation numbers, collecting field data and contributing to the existing photo identification catalogue, held at the University of Otago.

    Through a combination of science, community engagement and civilian monitoring of fishing activity, 'Operation Pahu' will make a stand for these precious dolphins before it is too late for them.
