The Baiji (Lipotes vexillifer)
-estimated 75-150 in the wild.
-endemic to the Yangtze
-Declined from 500 in 20 years
-no captive population
-hard to find/assess
-10% of the world's human population lives on the banks of the Yangtze
-pollution from factories
-collision with boat propellers
-hard to locate
-100 km impounded stretch of th river where fishing would be banned and pollution from the banks controlled
-a 25 km oxbow lake with nets at each end
-captive breeding including 3 pools and a 1 km artificial river has been constructed.
erm...Any other solution??
