Hong Kong’s Dolphins and Porpoise: An insight into their life and times

Hong Kong is home to two species of marine mammals – the Chinese white (or pink) – dolphin, and the finless porpoise. Both species are negatively impacted by continued habitat degradation, and population numbers are plummeting. Long-term studies of the dolphins have revealed much information on social dynamics, life history patterns and habitat use. However, the finless porpoise is rather more elusive. New technology is providing better insight into this smallest of marine mammals, and we are now beginning to have a clearer picture of just how important Hong Kong is to these two remarkable species.
