Stop Fishing Industry Sea Lion Deaths

Greenpeace has started a petition calling on Parliament to immediately reinstate the Fishing Related Mortality Limit (FRML), the official limit for ‘acceptable’ deaths of pakake, the New Zealand sea lion.
Why is this important?
Pakake, the New Zealand sea lion is the world’s rarest sea lion and an endangered species. There are only 10,000 and live around the remote sub-antarctic Auckland Islands. The population is in decline in the sub-antarctic after a 23% decline in pup numbers in the 2022/2023 season.

This is the lens needed for anyone wanting to shoot professional sports, surfing, wildlife etc. It's an amazing bit of kit.
