Australian Humpback dolphin

While there is no clear scientific estimate for the population of this dolphin, its population is certainly a few thousand. They are found between Northern Australia and Southern New Guinea. It was only described in 2014. It is most closely related to the Chinese humpback dolphin.

They suffer incidental capture in gill nets as other dolphins do. What is clear, is that more study is needed to fully understand the situation.
