Chinese White Dolphins are touching me
Sunday, 2 November 2014
Hi, everyone. Let you have my brief introduction. My name is Chan Tze Wing (Friends always call me Wingwing).I was born and brought up in a remote village in Yuen Long of the New Territories of the city. I am a new intern at HKDCS. To be honest, I did not have a complete science background but I enjoy getting intimate with nature. It explains why I got my bachelor degree is “Environmental Policy Studies” at City University of Hong Kong.
This is not an ideal attitude for a policy maker if he / she does not have full experience on conservation. It will look like as a Chinese saying like ‘fight only on paper’. Fortunately, Samuel is providing me a golden opportunity to have practical environmental conservation experience. It does help me put the theory into practice. .
In the following weekly journal, I would like to share my valuable internship experience with you.
Do you observe any features about this following figure?
Look twice. The pink dolphin mother is bringing up her baby until the calf is able to fend itself. When we are the babies, our mothers express their selfless love and care to us onwards. The highest and holiest love does not only exist in humankind, but also in the lovely dolphins. The mother dolphins rise to the water surface to breathe for 20 to 30 seconds and then they will dive into deep water again. A baby dolphin goes up to the water surface twice as much as an adult because calves have smaller lung capacities than adults. Adult dolphins can stay underwater for about 2 to 8 minutes, but a calf cannot stay underwater for more than 4 minutes. What a beautiful picture! The divine role of motherhood is a gift from God.
