Mainstream media has picked up the story of a World Conservation Society study which found “a stronghold for one of the world’s rarest freshwater dolphins, the Irrawaddy.” The survey documented almost 6,000 individuals in Bangledesh; quite a surprise considering previous population estimates were as low as a few hundred. The species still faces many threats from human activities, but perhaps this attention will encourage their protection!
