The Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin

Research recently published has confirmed that one of the two species of dolphins we sight in Menai Bay is the Indian Ocean humpback dolphin (sousa plumbea) and not as previously believed, the Indo Pacific humpback dolphin (sousa chinensis).

The Indian Ocean humpback dolphin has just been added to the Endangered list of the 2017 Cetacean Red list.

We at Safari Blue are committed to taking good care of the population that we sight.
