These include habitat alteration from climate change, and harassment from dolphinwatching operations. 7. CONSERVATION ACTIONS AND STATUS Although dolphins in many human societies are thought of as ‘charismatic megafauna’ and therefore enjoy popular status among the general public, the unfortunate reality is that, even with laws protecting them in place, most humpback dolphin populations appear to be negatively affected by many human activities.

The federal and provincial governments have failed to provide adequate protection for the animals to avoid population declines. , 2016). g. , 2016 for Borneo) and research work has been scant, some populations of humpback dolphins may have already been extirpated, without us even being aware of it. Only by thoroughly evaluating and recognizing the conservation status of the various species, subspecies, and populations of humpback dolphins will we have any chance of preserving the biological diversity that remains today.
