These Dolphins Need our Help!

These Dolphins Need our Help!
The Burrunan Dolphin needs our help. This species has now been identified as the most ancestral node for all ‘bottlenose’ dolphins worldwide, with the split dated at 1.03 million years ago!

With only two known resident populations in Victoria (Port Phillip Bay and the Gippsland Lakes) the Burrunan listed as ‘Critically endangered’ under Victoria’s Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act.

MMF’s Project Burrunan is the only research program of its kind in Victoria. With a special focus on the newly described dolphin species, this research aims to protect and conserve this charismatic and endemic dolphin for future generations to enjoy.

The specific aim of this project is to investigate the biology, population size and structure, and threatening process impacting the endangered Burrunan dolphin. With only 120 Burrunan resident to Victorias Port Phillip Bay and 65 resident to the Gippsland Lakes, the need to better understand these populations and the wider species is crucial. These populations have significant conservation concern due to their low levels of genetic diversity, close proximity to urban, agricultural and residential settings, and high exposure to various anthropogenic threats.
