12 Aug Save the Pink Dolphin from Extinction in Hong Kong and Taiwan!

The Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphin is a rare dolphin species native to Taiwan and Hong Kong coasts that starts out grey, then turns a pretty, bright pink with age. They tend to live only two to three kilometers from shore. Like other dolphins, they have complex social structures and communicate through whistling.

These unique marine mammals may soon disappear completely thanks to industrial expansion and pollution.

Industrial activity near Hong Kong’s and Taiwan’s coasts has been polluting the dolphins’ environment, and boat and construction noise has been drowning out dolphin communication. New expansion projects including a third runway at Hong Kong’s airport will further compromise the dolphins’ environment.

Please sign the petition to convince authorities to create environmental legislation that will put dolphins’ lives above industrial expansion.

    These fantastic animals have to be protected not only for our children but also for the balance of the earth.
