The Custodians of Dolphins


Over 30 species of whales and dolphins, one-third of all species, have been recorded in Taiwan. Some of these cetaceans migrate like birds and others stay year-round. Some dolphins’ preference for coastal habitats put them in historical conflict with mankind.

How have the three representative dolphins of Taiwan fared? This film follows three cetacean researchers as they work to answer this question.
