Scientists Track Irrawaddy Dolphins

Irrawaddy Dolphin (Orcaella brevirostris)

Scientists have started tracking the movements of Irrawaddy Dolphins in Chilka Lake in Eastern India. Using underwater hydrophones, they can record the movements and activities of the Dolphins, helping them understand migrations and track changes in the population. Several different populations of Irrawaddy dolphins exist, all of them endangered or critically endangered.
