"Only 85 Irrawaddy Dolphins are Left in the Mekong River, According to a New Study
Barney Long, WWF's Asian Species Expert, commented that "These dolphins are at high risk of extinction by their small population size alone...with the added threats of gill net entanglement and high calf mortality, we are seriously concerned about their future."
The best hope for the dolphin, say researchers, is through joint conservation programs designed in cooperation with local fisheries administrations."
