Presenting Humpback Dolphins at the WIOMSA symposium

By 6 years ago
Categories Uncategorized

The third poster GVI Kenya is presenting at the WIOMSA scientific symposium focuses on the Humpback dolphin population present around the Shimoni area, using sightings data and photographs taken since 2006 to estimate population size, location and possible threat from anthropogenic activities.

Identification Number 016 – this dolphin has evidence of a fishing line injury

We have identified a population of 32 dolphins, who inhabit mainly shallow coastal areas between Sii Island and Funzi Bay, through the Wasini Channel. Four individuals have evidence of injuries from fishing equipment or boat interactions. In addition, the core range of their distribution does not fall within the boundaries of the KMMPA, meaning no restrictions on fishing levels and methods are in place.
