This letter was sent to Harry Duynhoven when he was MP for New Plymouth, by James Griffiths, then the North Island Field Officer for the Royal Forest and Bird Society NZ.

It shows that in 1977 one was caught in a gill net off Seal Rocks. This is the type specimen in Te Papa. There are credible sightings of Maui Dolphins off Saddleback in 2004, Waitara 2004, and in the harbour in 2007.
