Project by WWF-Hong Kong
Do you want to help our research into the dangers posed to Chinese white dolphin from heavy marine traffic? Do you want to play a part in protecting their core habitat? We have launched a crowdfunding appeal to help us deploy nine hydrophones from April 2018. The underwater microphones will be placed around Tai O and nearby waters, one of the dolphins remaining core habitats, with the data gathered helping our work to lobby the government for more marine protected areas. There are only 47 Chinese white dolphins remaining in Hong Kong western waters. Habitat destruction from coastal reclamation and busy marine traffic are the top two threats. Make a difference for this iconic species today. *The same campaign has also been launched on a WWF-Hong Kong minisite.
