WWF concerned for Hong Kong’s dolphins

WWF is saying that the Hong Kong government should designate no-go areas in the sea off North Lantau, to try and protect the Chinese white dolphin. Their concerns are because the whole area is likely to be affected by major intrastructure projects, including the Hong Kong – Macau – Zhuhai bridge. The land checkpoint for it will apparently need 130 hectares of new land, east of Chek Lap Kok airport. An environmental impact assessment is underway.

Here’s an article from The Standard.
