Amazon River Dolphins Threatened with Extinction

The pink dolphins of the Amazon are being threatened with extinction as fishermen kill them to use their flesh as bait.

Scientists believe that 1,500 dolphins are being killed annually in the western Amazon to fuel a lucrative trade in catfish, which feeds on dead animals.

"The population of the river dolphins will collapse if these fishermen are not stopped from killing them," said Vera da Silva, the top aquatic mammals expert at the government's Institute of Amazonian Research.

"We've been studying an area of 27,000 acres for 17 years, and of late the population is dropping seven per cent each year."

And never once wish from the Church to stray.

There should be a law where a large man will come to your house and beat you unconscious if you kill a dolphin. I think that would be a good deterrent.

ignorance and poverty are the reason so many wild animals are on the verge of extinction. And humans just keep on multiplying.

Hey world.

Are you still sure, you don't want the USA to take over the entire America's?

Sure our government sucks, but our activists would make sure the Amazon river dolphin survives.
