32nd Pink Dolphin Stranding for 2014

Ocean Park Conservation Fund (OPCF) HK’s Cetacean Stranding Response Team is investigating a Chinese white dolphin (Sousa chinensis) stranding case yesterday (10th August 2014). A female adult measuring 2.53 m in length was found with bruises near the blowhole and both left and right flippers. Because the body was severely decomposed, the cause of death could not be readily determined and OPCF collected samples for further examination.

This case brings the total number of stranding case this year to 32. Please call 1823 to report any strandings.
