Goodbye White Flag Dolphins

One of the only four fresh water species of dolphins is now gone forever. Only 13 of them in 1997, now there are none. This just makes me very angry. And I get a sick feeling in my stomach just trying to imagine the very last one all by itself, dying all alone.

Two weeks ago and the world doesn't even know

The really sad thing is that six months ago an international group of ziologists started making plans to save some and move them to an isolated lake near the Yangtze to start a breeding program (because the river has basically been polluted and fished out since industrialization so the dolphins will all starve and get sick if they stay in the river).

Here's the BBC story

But it was all too little too late, and now they can't find any. :(

Unfortunately it isn't only this dolphin. A member of my family is involved in this kind of research - there is more than one kind of dolphin in danger and certain whale species too. I find it so very sad too :cry1 .
