I sincerely hope their efforts are rewarded very soon. Small populations are very difficult to sustain.

I hope that WWF is a strong enough lobbying group to make an impact.

Best way to save these dolphins is to destroy the Ho Chi Minh Chinese puppet Communist 'government'. China's imperialism is murderous!

Not shocking that southeast asia is once again in the middle of this. All too often when an animal species is in trouble anywhere in the world, you can be pretty sure some southeast asian country is involved. A useless, soulless, morally corrupt civilization.
