INDUS RIVER DOLPHIN CALVES SUCCESSFULLY RESCUED IN EASTERN PAKISTAN

WWF Pakistan

The calves were a male, 81.2 cm in length and weighing approximately 6 kg and a female, 91.4 cm in length and weighing about 9 kg.

Numbers for this species have dramatically declined since the construction of the irrigation system in the Indus. Most now remain in a 1200 km stretch of the Indus River. The Indus River dolphin is one of the world’s rarest mammal and most endangered cetaceans. A 2011 dolphin population survey estimated the population to be 1,297 individuals

I feel things.

You make me feel things!

I like Motown ballads. I kinda like cherry tomatoes. I LOVE working out.

I don’t appreciate the cold. I dislike Mac computers. I HATE dolphins!

What? I don’t even feel things that make sense.

Who hates dolphins, the our brethren of the sea?

This is how you make me feel.

Like Tin Man finally receiving a heart.

I feel.

I feel everything.

Every hair on my head, every fibre in my clothing, every emotion known to man.

All my nerves are back again.

Cross my heart and hope to die

I need these feelings in my life.
