It has been a great start into the new year for dolphins in Bangladesh: Three new wildlife sanctuaries have been declared in the Sundarbans Reserved Forest for the protection of our endangered freshwater dolphins, our research team recorded a new species for Bangladesh in the Swatch-of-No-Ground (false killer whales), and we are about to launch our third floating dolphin exhibition, the Shushuk Mela 2012.
With best regards,
