Chinese White Dolphin

Funding research on Chinese white dolphin conservation

The Indo-Pacific-Humpback Dolphin, commonly known as the Chinese white dolphin has an enlarged dorsal hump at mid-back on which a small, falcate dorsal fin sits hence the common name. The colour of Chinese white dolphin has great variations depending on their geographical location. In Chinese waters, their colour changes with age: newborns are dark grey, and their color changes to white or pink as they grow up. Some adults may retain grey spots.
In recent years, the awareness of Chinese white dolphin conservation has raised and more attention has been given to local conservation work. Major threats that they are facing include: fishing net entanglement, habitat loss and disturbance, and marine traffic and pollution.

Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong (OPCFHK) is actively involved in Chinese white dolphin conservation. We have established the only Cetacean Stranding Response Team in Hong Kong and funded different conservation projects.
