An article http://www.lane-forumactif.com/t3157-le-marsouin-du-yangtse-menace-d-extinction-chine April 19, 2012, states that the species will be extinct within 15 years if nothing is done to stop the bleeding. Once again, China shows that it is more concerned about the power of money to the detriment of both humans and wildlife ...

So very sad. China has proven in the past that it doesn't care about its wildlife, its history, even its people. The only things China cares about is money and its slave labor.

They've been endangered for years, but it doesn't seem any effort whatsoever has been made to save them. Maybe this drop to "critically endangered" will finally wake the Chinese government up--though if they do decide to implement a conservation program of some sort, I hope it's better organized than the one for the baiji was.

I understand how it is that many do not believe in Creator but I cannot understand how they can not believe in the negative kingdoms and forces that come to rob and kill and destroy.

Noted with sadness that every living creature on this earth is being killed off by us. What are we, there is just no way we can be called human!
