The TIME Magazine also reported this, tis a say day, as it seems that we've once again, placed our own development over preservation of the enviroment.

It's tragic that it's in the news today, but likely forgotten a week from now. Hopefully there are a couple of them left that have just managed to stay off the radar, but it certainly doesn't look good for the species.

As far as the river dolphins go, I hear they are getting pretty scarce. Boating and pollution have pretty much done them in too.

Stupid humans...
