Introducing our unique Hector's Dolphin earrings! This duel design is made from black and white ice cream container lids that sit over one another to create the distinct outlines of the dolphin.
Hector's dolphins are found only in New Zealand. Unfortunately, they are threatened by human activities, such as trawl fishing. Trawl fishing involves dragging large nets across the ocean floor, which can result in accidental capture and death of these dolphins. This type of fishing also damages the habitats that Hector's dolphins depend on for food and shelter.
Protecting Hector's dolphins is important because they are an endemic species, meaning that they are found nowhere else in the world. They play an important role in the ocean's ecosystem, and their loss could have ripple effects on the entire food chain.
If you want to help protect Hector's dolphins, there are several steps you can take.
- One of the most impactful things you can do is to choose seafood that is sustainably caught, meaning that it is caught in a way that minimizes harm to marine life and their habitats.
- You can also support organizations that are working to protect Hector's dolphins and their habitats.
- Finally, spreading awareness about the importance of protecting these dolphins and the dangers they face can help to bring about change.
By purchasing these earrings, you are not only adding a unique and beautiful accessory to your wardrobe, but you are also supporting a good cause, with $2 from each pair sold donated to Our Seas Our Future who are campaigning for more protection for these beautiful cetaceans. So, join us in our mission to protect Hector's dolphins and their habitats, and make a difference with every purchase.
