Only over 50 Irrawaddy dolphins left Endangered species

The Irrawaddy dolphin, a rare species of dolphin in Burma, has just over 80 and is in danger of extinction, according to Wcs Myanmar, an NGO working to protect the Irrawaddy dolphins.

Six Irrawaddy dolphins have died in the last seven months, and two more have died in the past few days.

“The main reason is that the dolphins are dying because the fishermen are fishing in the shops,” he said. They are arrested at regular intervals. I patrolled. Irrawaddy dolphins die when they are caught patrolling, ”said Naing Lin, executive manager of Wcs Myanmar.

Most Irrawaddy dolphins are dying, and dolphins need to reproduce naturally. Difficult to grow; Due to the declining number of animals, it is difficult to reproduce.

“Roughly speaking, he was killed. The Irrawaddy dolphin is a rare freshwater dolphin. There are only 79 in Myanmar. Now that six have died, only 73 remain. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person. There will be some that cannot be found. In the meantime, I was afraid it would be worse and unreadable because of the fishing in the shop, ”he said.

The Irrawaddy dolphin, also known as the Pho Pyone Cho, is a rare species in the world that is endangered and endorsed globally.

“We need to urge them to protect us before the extinction, rather than mourning the loss of a seed,” he said. I would like to ask the authorities to provide more protection, ”said WCS Myanmar.
