I just knew there are pink dolphins when I watched the news about burning of Amazon rain forest recently.

Yes, pink dolphins are categorized as endangered species which live in the main rivers of Amazon.

Forest fires will have scary effect on many animal population there, both land and river creatures.

The rivers cover several following countries:
- Brazil
- Peru
- Bolivia
- Venezuela
- Guyana
- Colombia
- Ecuador

The population of pink dolphins in the world were estimated 9,000 only, and killed around by 3,000 per year.

Population is mainly in the Amazon rivers. Hence, Amazon rain forest fires may reduce population even further.

Previously, the death of pink dolphins due to:
- poacher
- pollution
- river traffics that caused accidental dead.

Moreover, we may ask a question: why do Amazon dolphins have a pink color? The simple answer that their thin skin made blood vessels easily seen as a pink color.

Interesting facts about pink dolphins:
- while young, their color is gray
- they get their pink color as they grow older
- males are pinker than females

They mainly eat fresh water fish which abundance in the rivers, they also eat:
- turtles
- crabs
- shrimps

  11. Non ho mai visto delfini rosa e, come i loro fratelli, sono bellissimi. La distruzione della natura e uno tristezza e una preoccupazione infinita. Quando l’uomo si renderà conto di quello che sta facendo?
    Buona giornata.

  26. Any effort to save the Amazon will be little, Evi. Your article helps not to raise awareness about the imperative need we have today. The Amazon and its species are our lungs and future. Not to forget

    Big hug dear friend.

  63. No sabía que existían este tipo de delfines, y menos, de que hubiera delfines en los ríos. Terrible, la cifra de ellos que mueren todos los años, así como los incendios, seguro que intencionados, que está sufriendo la selva amazónica.
    Por todo esto, me parece tu entrada muy interesante, ya que hay que remover conciencias sobre el respeto y cuidado de la naturaleza. Y tu con esta entrada lo consigues.
    Un abrazo, Evi.
