The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) estimates that there are at least 600,000 common bottlenose dolphins and 520 indo-pacific bottlenose dolphins left in the wild.
The worldwide population of bottlenose dolphins is unknown, but specific bottlenose dolphin populations in a few areas have been estimated. The U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service surveys estimate 243,500 bottlenose dolphins in the eastern tropical Pacific. Japanese surveys estimate 316,935 dolphins in the northwest Pacific and around 45,000 bottlenose dolphins in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
Adding up all the estimates from different regions, the worldwide bottlenose dolphin population comes out to about 625,000. This dolphin is not considered endangered.
