Wow, this is just another example of the effects that we're having on our environment. It a shame that we've lost such a unique creature.

Hopefully, the researchers will be able to get new leads or something and will be able to find a few specimen.

Wait, didn't they say it lives in the Yhangzee river? Isn't that fresh water? Anyway... it's too bad. But I thought I've heard that one animal goes extinct every 5 minutes or something like that, so it was bound to happen eventually. Maybe in a few decades they will randomly pull one up, like that one other fish they thought was extinct.

As this is a dolphin, and the only one I believe that lives in fresh water besides some in the amazon I find this very very sad.

Dolphins have structered societies, individual names, can recognise themselves in the mirror and also are able to plan and use tools, and yet they are now declining in types,


very sad and worrying.

Even if large new animals are not discovered. The current ones can become extinct.

Thus is the way things are.
