'Maui's dolphin or popoto (Cephalorhynchus hectori maui) is the world's rarest and smallest known subspecies of dolphin.[1] They are a sub-species of the Hector's dolphin.

They are only found off the northwest coast of New Zealand's North Island, and are among that country's rarest subspecies. As of 2012, it is estimated that 55 Maui's dolphins exist in the world.[2]

Maui dolphins are generally found close to shore in groups or pods of several dolphin. They are often seen in water less than 20 metres deep, but may also range further off shore. Most of their time is spent feeding. - Wikipedia
