SoundSplash 2008 shook the shores of Raglan. And Music4Mauis was there to enjoy every last drop!

As a vibrant surfing community, Raglan feels the effects of dolphin devastation as much as anywhere in NZ.

Surfer’s are among the luckiest people around to be able to experience such a magical creature at such close range. These good omens are a blessing to our oceans.

To all those who filled out the ‘Petition Post Cards’ thank you. The post cards are a valuable record of public support for our endangered dolphins. From stalls across the country so far, thousands of these have been completed by New Zealander’s who care about the protecting the last of the species native to our coastline. These post cards are mailed to our Prime Minister Helen Clark.

Please also note that you can help out by texting dolphin to 8080 at any time (yes as much as you want!). The message is sent to Helen Clark as a reminder that our dolphins need urgent action. Texts cost 20c.

This was an amazing place to set up camp(aign). The festival was seriously awesome. Here we met the most amazing people, all eager to help out in any way possible. We had a number of artists inquiring and offering to contribute music to the cause that is soon to become the ‘Music4Mauis’ New Zealand music compilation CD. Going to events like this really reassures you that you’re doing the right thing when you get so much positive support!

Thanks everyone!

The ‘Music4Mauis’ campaign reaches Wellington. What better place to set up camp for the day than right outside the beehive? Surely someone will see us here!
