Objectives
The waters off North Lantau and the Pearl River estuary are home to the Chinese white dolphin (Sousa chinensis). Little is known of this animal and nothing about it in Hong Kong. The economic development of the Pearl River Estuary is impacting the dolphin and this study aims to provide basic information on the biology and ecology of the dolphin to, hopefully, facilitate its conservation.
