Guardians of the Amazon: protecting the endangered river dolphins
In my last blog, I shared the devastating impact of the climate crisis on the Amazon and the river dolphins who call it home. But that’s not the only threat facing these remarkable beings. As human populations continue to transform rivers and pollute waters to serve our own needs, the future for these dolphins is looking particularly bleak. So today, I want to tell you how we’re working to ensure their survival by supporting the communities that live alongside them.
Amazon tragedy as endangered river dolphins die in hot water
The climate crisis is accelerating at such an alarming rate that some whale and dolphin populations haven’t got time to adapt. More frequent and severe droughts and heatwaves are threatening the survival of species and ecosystems that are crucial to our own existence.

WDC in Japan – Part 3: Restoring freedom to dolphins in South Korea
In my last blog, I shared my spectacular encounter with digital whales and dolphins, now I want to tell you about the real dolphins I had the chance to marvel at in the wild from Jeju Island in South Korea. The best part of the story is that some of them were once in captivity but have been successfully released into the wild thanks to the tireless work of an organisation called Hot Pink Dolphins. Today, these dolphins swim wild and free again, reunited with their original family. Since South Korea is only a stone’s throw away from Japan, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to meet the team responsible.
