Title: Chinese White Dolphin: Tell Me Where Can I Go?

Chinese White Dolphin, originally named Indo-pacific Humpback Dolphin, is Hong Kong's mascot. But in the recent years, number of Chinese White Dolphin cming to Hong Kong is decreased. Dr. Andy Cornish, the conservation director of WWF Hong Kong came to the weekly assembly of Hong Kong Shue Yan University Department of Journalism and Communication today. He was here to explain for the decrease of the number and what WWF's work is to protect the marine life.

Dr. Cornish pointed out that Hong Kong has a combination of quality of water: eastern water is muddy but weatern water is clear, so Hong Kong had the largest Chinese White Dolphin population. But pollution, overfishing, dredging and dumping and reclamation are threats of them. Overfishing causes insufficient food for Chinese White Dolphin. Fishermen catch everything, even the infants, so not many babies can survive. Also, city development occupies the dolphin's site, so they have to tolerate the noise and disturbance from the construction. Therefore, Chinese White Dolphin started not coming to Hong Kong.

Dr. Cornish explained the works of WWF. Few years ago, WWF urged the government stopping allowing commwecial fishing in marine park. And it finally paid off. The government achieved that by changing the law. Recently MMF launched a programme called SOS, Save Our Sea Campaign. MMF proposed to create more marine parks to protect our marine animals. Dr. Cornish said that although we are small in this community, we can also do some beaches cleaning work and most importantly, support WWF.
