The Taiwanese white dolphin is a subspecies only found in Taiwan. Since 2008 it has been listed as Critically Endangered in the Red List of Threatened Species of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), meaning that it is globally recognized as facing an extremely high risk of extinction. The dolphins face a plethora of human human threats, such as fisheries mortality and habitat degradation. This research aims understand how different threats may impact the persistence of this small population, both temporally and spatially. This research will contribute to local conservation actions and help in evaluating recovery goals for the Taiwanese dolphin population and can be applied in Canadian waters to help save endangered species with similar traits.
