Chinese River Dolphin

Did you know the Chinese River Dolphin was a freshwater dolphin found only in the Yangtze River in China? And it is believed to be extinct after a 2006 survey in China to locate the endangered dolphin found no evidence of its survival. We did this. Human actions caused the death of this mammal. Over fishing, pollution of the river, and killing of dolphins (accidental and intentional) led to the dolphins' extinction.

I am embarrassed for all mankind. We can do better. We need to honor and protect all creatures of this earth.
