A resident came across a carcass of a dolphin washed up on Eastern Cheung Chau beach this morning and alerted The Ocean Park Conservation Foundation immediately.

The baby dolphin body is 96cm long and it has decomposed for some time. Staff from the Foundation did a post mortem autopsy on the spot and took samples back for further examination. This is the 17th similar case reported this and the foundation has urged the public to call the hotline 1823 if they come across any similar carcass in the future.
