Whales, Dolphins, Porpoises and Us Infographic 



In July 2023, the death of a whale at Sai Kung created ripples in people's hearts. Fast-forward to today, what can be done? 

The Whales, Dolphins, Porpoises, and Us infographic created by Little Woods sheds light on the vital roles of cetaceans in our ecosystem and the threats these marine mammals currently face. By presenting this information, we encourage a deeper reflection on the intrinsic relationship between our way of life and the well-being of cetaceans. Recognising our connectedness with cetaceans, each of us can take a step to protect our local Chinese White Dolphins and Finless Porpoises, and extend our efforts to protect the magnificent cetacean species worldwide.
