A 49,000-signature petition calling on the government to protect Maui's dolphins will be presented to parliament on Wednesday.

Organisers say there will be banners, people dressed as dolphins and crowds of supporters on the forecourt at 11.30am.

There's growing concern among conservationists about the critically endangered species as there are thought to be only 55 still alive.

The government has introduced interim measures, which critics say are inadequate, and is working on a new protection regime.
