  4. 4. WHY ARE DOLPHIN’S ENDANGERED ANIMALS?• There are less than 600 dolphins left of this species.• These kind of unique dolphins are threatened by fishing nets and commercial killing.• Other species in danger is the black or Chilean dolphin, which lives off the coast of Chile in the Pacific ocean.• There are other dolphin species which are becoming threatened too, but not as those above.
  5. 5. HOW TO PROTECT BLIND DOLPHINS? The death of 24 endangered dolphins in the river Indus, Pakistan last year has led to recommendations for a complete ban on fishing in their reserve. Officials from the Sindh Wildlife Department have become concerned at the use of chemicals by local fishermen within the reserve, which are being blamed for the majority of reported river dolphin mortalities.

  7. 7. NEW PROTECTION OF INDUS DOLPHINS The death of 24 endangered dolphins in the river Indus, Pakistan last year has led to recommendations for a complete ban on fishing in their reserve. Officials from the Sindh Wildlife Department have become concerned at the use of chemicals by local fishermen within the reserve, which are being blamed for the majority of reported river dolphin mortalities. The 210km long reserve was established in 1974 between the Guddu and Sukkur barrages in an effort to protect the endangered Indus blind dolphin, Platanista gangetica ssp. minor, the population of which was thought to be as low as 150 at the time.
