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.

And from what i've read the other species in the river is in bad shape as well. Don't thing any of the river dolphins are doing that well

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...
