Have You Ever Heard About This Species of Dolphins?

0

One week ago, Emma Schmidt, a Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service ranger, spotted this cutie jumping out of the water surrounded by 10 humpback dolphins, a species that’s in danger of extinction. The species is named “snubfin dolphins” and just 200 individuals were seen in Pacific Ocean so we think he might be number 201! Unfortunately, the story of the first snubfin dolphin wasn’t so cute not funny. His skull was discovered at Mellville Bay in 1948. Researchers theorize that the dolphin was eaten by aboriginals. Now the australian snubfin dolphins are covered by the Memorandum of Understanding for the Conservation of Cetaceans and Their Habitats in the Pacific Islands Region.
