Our friends from Black Cat Cruises wrote this great article summarising how important Hector's dolphins are, not just as a key species in marine ecosystems, but also to NZ's economy.

It’s estimated that the Hector’s dolphin industry generates around $10M a year in direct and indirect revenue and supports around 100 jobs in Canterbury alone. The dolphins are the must do attraction in Akaroa and bring vital tourism dollars to the region. Over $100M in the last 10 years.
