About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Chinese

From the preface:
"We took 180,000 photos, more than one thousand video clips and thousands of GPS location points. With these records, we gradually understand many aspects of white dolphins and their life, including their population, distribution, migration, estrus, mating, breeding and feeding. We paid special attention to the biodiversity of estuarine-coastal-neritic ecosystem that white dolphins rely on and the basin state of its inflow rivers, in order to figure out proper conservation tactics to maintain this white dolphin population. Our work has been based on a systematic study on the relationship between local ecological events and dynamics of the dolphin population. This book present some of the findings from our nie years of research. Hopefully it can facilitate the understanding of and draw more attention to the white dolphins in the Beibu Gulf. The secret life of the white dolphins will be unveiled from this book."
