The Baiji River Dolphin is no more.
The news broke a few days ago, but I didn't really notice at the time. Then, today, I was given a translated article to edit, written shortly before the Baiji dolphin was declared "functionally extinct". It's so sad to read the article, written while there was still some hope for the species's survival. It's the first large mammal ever driven into extinction due to human destruction of habitats.
Anyway, just thought you should all know about this. Not sure what kind of reporting you've seen about this, but I find it very sad.
