The Last Of The Pink Dolphins

 


HONG KONGS PINK DOLPHINS UNDER THREAT!

A few months ago, our dolphin team trained with the Hong Kong Dolphin Conservation Society (HKDCS) to learn more about the Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin, the same species found in Singapores waters.

Unfortunately the population isnt doing too well in Hong Kong, as the population has plummeted from 158 in 2003 to 61 in 2014 a 40% decline.

The BBC has written a very interesting and informative article about this take a look!

We aim to learn more about the Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins found in Singapore waters, so that we can learn how to protect them.



With the number of these unique mammals plummeting due to development, land reclamation and pollution, now is the time to see them before its too late.
