Dolphin Pod News – Week Ending Nov 1, 2007

A lone Baiji may have been sighted in the Yangtze River. The Baiji is a freshwater dolphin species decaled functionally extinct earlier this year.  In September, Reuters reported that a Chinese fisherman may have seen and even videotaped a Baiji. Even if this sighting can be confirmed however, it will not change the status of this extinct species; a lone Baiji or even just a few Baiji will not be enough to bring the population back to sustainable numbers.
