HKDCS works tirelessly to arouse public awareness on the importance to conserve our local cetaceans (including Chinese white dolphins and finless porpoises) and their living habitats, the impacts posed by dolphin-watching activities to dolphins, and the global issues on whale and dolphin conservation such as captivity, whaling, fishery by-catch and marine pollution.

HKDCS also conducts scientific research on wild dolphins in Hong Kong and nearby regions including China and Taiwan, and educates the Hong Kong public on the importance of dolphin conservation through campaigns, events and media. In addition, HKDCS offers ample opportunities for research interns and volunteers to participate in the conservation of local cetaceans.
