Hong Kong’s wild stars
Martin Williams


          There are even a few stars emerging among local species. Here is a selection of four of these wild stars.


Chinese white dolphin


         
          When newborn, the dolphins are grey, but as they age they switch to dapple-grey, becoming uniform soft pink as adults, making this one of only two pink dolphins in the world. For some reason, the dolphins in and near Hong Kong are a richer pink than those elsewhere, which has helped them become a tourist attraction, with specialist operator Hong Kong Dolphinwatch offering excursions to see the "world’s pinkest dolphins".
