The Chinese white dolphin (Sousa chinensis) is a lovely sight in Hong Kong. This one was photographed by "Mr. Dolphin", aka Thomas Tue.

The Chinese white dolphin was first recorded here in as early as the 1600s. Dolphin tours take you around the Pearl River Estuary, and as the dolphins prefer to stay close to the shore, they are relatively easy to find near Castle Peak, Lung Kwu Chau and Sha Chau Marine Park, Chek Lap Kok and Tai O.

The population has been decreasing, and the airport, bridge and regular ferry services do not help as well as the increase in pollution, so now there are fewer young dolphins sighted in Hong Kong waters.
