Thanks everyone, this is so important, 78 is not a big number of this type of dolphin and should be protected by all means necessary. Also that so many people depend upon this river and so little regard given to them which could cause a large humanitarian crisis.

Linda behind everything that is shoved down the people's throat is a Corporation or Wealthy individual or group of who will make money off of it. They have bought Governments or many within Governments and this is ongoing in all parts of the world right now. Matters not what is good for the environment, the people, the animals, if it makes a few a lot of money, that is what most everything is about today. Is why it's taken so long to get renewable and clean energy sources on board, it's blocked by those who stand to loose money from the dirty fuels.
