09-12-2010 - Irrawaddy dolphin
For sometime only one population of Irrawaddy dolphin (Orcaella brevirostris) was known in the Philippines, i.e. the Malampaya Sound population in Palawan (~70-80 animals). In 2007 a very small population was discovered in the Visayas region raising hopes that there might be other remnant populations that are yet to be found. This project investigates occurrence of Irrawaddy dolphins in the country.
