Have you actually lived until you"ve seen a rare pink dolphin?"Seeing a
dolphin, any dolphin, is an incredibly special experience.
These wise mammals
have inhabited the planet much longer than human beings, and in that time they
have surely learned some tricks we can"t even fathom." Just ten years ago
it was common to spot these beauties in the wild on a regular basis.
Now they
are few and far between.

destructive human behaviors, one rare type of dolphin, the Indo-Pacific
Humpback dolphin, also known as the pink dolphin or the white dolphin, could
soon disappear from the planet altogether.
"There are only about 2,000 of
these cephalopods left in Southern China and the Western Pacific
Ocean."Related: Is it Cruel to Swim With Dolphins?The species has been in
peril for some time and conservationists continue to warn that development
along Hong Kong"s increasingly busy harbor, including a giant bridge
connecting Hong Kong with mainland China and Macao, and airport improvements,
will destroy the remainder of the population.Figures from the"Hong Kong
Dolphin Conservation Society"report just around"61 pink dolphins left in the
Hong Kong area—an incredibly steep decline since 2003.So how can you
see one before they disappear? Very carefully and with intention.
"Hong Kong
DolphinWatch"takes visitors out into the harbor by boat on a mission to
educate about conservation.
They look, but they don"t touch and most of the
fees go back towards conservation efforts."Scheduled tours run every
Wednesday, Friday and Sunday."
