The Taiwanese humpback dolphin is a subspecies of the Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin. It is an endangered species found only in a narrow stretch of estuarine water on the western coast of Taiwan.
The exhibit will feature a documentary about the endangered species and talks by researcher Huang Hsiang-lin on recent findings about the Taiwanese Humpback Dolphin.
The museum says human factors have had an impact on the dolphin’s survival. These include trash and coastline development near their habitat. The museum is calling on the public to take care of Taiwan’s coastal waters. [FULL STORY]
