As a club we have adopted a pink dolphin with a donation of £31, the funds for this came out of the club bank account so it belongs to all the swimmers at Henley synchro.
The Amazon river dolphin, also known as the pink river dolphin or boto, lives only in freshwater. It is found throughout much of the Amazon and Orinoco river basins in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, and Venezuela. It is a relatively abundant freshwater cetacean with an estimated population in the tens of thousands. However, it is classified as vulnerable in certain areas due to dams that fragment and threaten certain populations, and from other threats such as contamination of rivers and lakes.
We will be getting our pack sent to us soon including a pink dolphin teddy that will be our club mascot. when we get it we will have a competition to name the mascot. We will update everyone on our sponsored dolphin and our new mascot as and when we get updated.
