6000 Rare Dolphins Found In Bangladesh

With all the doom and gloom about species going extinct, here’s a nice story about a species that was found to be more plentiful than scientists thought.  A group of 6000 Irrawaddy dolphins have been found in the mangrove forests of Bangladesh and the Bay of Bengal.  The total worldwide population of the species is unknown, but they are very rare. The 6.5 to 8 foot long dolphins surface only once in a while, so it was difficult for researchers to pinpoint their numbers.  More over at National Geographic.
