Pink Dolphins Produced by Bessie Ng 8H
Why are they called the pink dolphins? These dolphins are called the Pink Dolphins because when they are young, they have a tint of pink. But they are also known as the Chinese White Dolphins, because they turn white once they reach the age of adulthood.
Environmental Issues… The Pink Dolphins are on the endangered animals list because their numbers are gradually decreasing over the years. There are estimated to be only about 1400 pink dolphins in the harbours of Hong Kong nowadays. Compared to the numbers about 20 years ago, there are very little pink dolphins left in Hong Kong.

How can we help? There are many small things you can do to help the pink dolphins. Here are some examples: - Eat organic vegetables and fruits, so there will be less food ending up in seas. - Conserve water, the less water goes down your drain, the better your sewage system can treat your sewage. - Eat less seafood to prevent over-fishing.
How can we help? - Use “cleaner” household cleansers. Choose ones that will damage the environment less. - Don’t buy a lot of marine animals. By buying more, you are encouraging people to kill and get more. - Don’t buy things you don’t need. Because they will be delivered from other countries by cars, trucks etc. And that will cause more pollution to the sea.
How can we help? - Take fewer photographs. Do you know what happened to the chemicals they use to develop your film? - Cut down the amount of petrol you use. Once in a while, the boats used to deliver the petrol crashes, and the petrol will spill into the ocean. You use less, they ship less.
