~~Some days I wake up and I totally hate people.~~
Last year the Yangtze river dolphin had dwindled down to the measly # of 17.--17 river dolphins left. After over fishing, over crowding and the
building of a dam, the Yangtze river dolphin is now officially extinct. This is the 1st time in 50 yrs. that a vertebrate has become extinct & I\'m
sad to say that We\'ll probably make quick work of others as well. What a beautiful, graceful creature. Your children will now study these
magnificent beings in school books right next to the Dodo bird and the Thylacine. My heart aches today.
