Descriere: epa08739547 Dr. Laurence McCook, Head of Oceans Conservation at World Wide Fund, (WWF), takes part in a tour to observe Chinese white dolphin (Sousa chinensis) near Lantau Island in Hong Kong, China, 12 October 2020 (issued 13 October 2020). According to the World Wide Fund, (WWF), the population of Chinese white dolphins inhabiting the Pearl River Delta, including Hong Kong, is estimated to number around 2,500 individuals. In Hong Kong they face an increasing number of threats including habitat loss and degradation, prey depletion, underwater noise disturbance, vessel traffic as well as toxins and pollutants. As ferry traffic between Hong Kong and Macau has been temporarily stopped due to travelling restrictions brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, some dolphins have returned to their old feeding areas. Cetacean experts from the Pearl River proposed an emergency plan to give the dolphin population a chance to stabilise and recover that includes a protection of core areas critical for feeding, mating and socialising among other measures.
