Hundreds of Dolphins spotted in Pakistani seas
Karachi: The Cetacean Conservation Pakistan (CCP) team, led by Dr. Mauvis Gore of the University Marine Biological Station in Scotland, and also comprising the researchers from WWF-Pakistan and Centre of Excellence in Marin Biology (CEMB), University of Karachi, has begun their new season surveying the whales, dolphins and porpoises or “cetaceans” found in Pakistani waters. In their latest survey on the continental shelf 120 km offshore—on 2000 meter deep waters—the team saw hundreds of spinner dolphins, both alone and in groups or “pods”, arriving from at least 2 km away. These dolphins are famous for their aerial display as they leap out of the water and spin before diving back in.
