A bit of light monday morning activism for you. Here is world class surfer and activist David Rastovich paddling away on the west coast on New Zealand, accompanied by a pod of the NZ Maui dolphins.

He did 350km in all to raise awareness of the threats of sea bed mining – the entire coast is under prospecting or exploration permits with a view to mining the iron sands there. Bad news indeed for fisheries, surf breaks, the 55 NZ Maui dolphins that exist, and the wider oceanic ecosystem of the region.
