The coastal towns of dolphin as the galician, of small size, low genetic diversity and low connectivity, are very susceptible to any disturbance locally, which can have drastic negative effects on them, making them very vulnerable to human impacts, warns the Coordinator for the Study of Marine Mammals (CEMMA).

The study was recently published by the entity demonstrates that the indices of genetic diversity for the different coastal populations of dolphins are consistent with the estimates of abundance of the species for each area, so that the greater the number of individuals expected greater variability.

The coastal population of bottlenose dolphins of Galicia , it is estimated that between 636 and 822 specimens, is the second largest genetic diversity in the world, according to a scientific study, but their vulnerability is high compared with the populations of the ocean, dolphins.

So, CEMMA stresses the need for the habitat of the coastal dolphins through special areas of conservation, figure referred to in the Habitats Directive of the European Union, as well as through conservation measures, and specific.
