The humpback dolphin is South Africa's most endangered dolphin species. In order to effectively protect them from further population declines, we need to understand their population status and movement patterns. Therefore we're conducting a research project on this species, based on photo-identification, a research technique that allows us to identify each individual humpback dolphin through the marks and scars on their dorsal fin and bodies.

All pictures of humpback dolphins along the South African coast can greatly contribute to this research and conservation project!
