About the New Zealand Whale and Dolphin Trust

The New Zealand Whale and Dolphin Trust was launched in 1992 by researchers Drs Liz Slooten and Steve Dawson, along with Trust Patron Sir Geoffrey Palmer to foster research and effective conservation of whales and dolphins in New Zealand.

The Trust's long-term goal is;
"To enhance the current knowledge of behavioural ecology, distribution and genetic diversity of New Zealand's whales and dolphins and help create informed management decisions".
