World Animals facing Imminent Extinction



maxxseoulMaxxseoul on 02/22/2010

WorldAnimalsfacingImminentExtinction Photo The Baiji dolphin, or Yangtze River Dolphin of China, is now considered officially "functionally" extinct.
What does "functionally" extinct mean?
In terms of numbers, there are so few left, the population is no longer viable.
A research team from 6 different nations did not record a sighting of a single individual during an extensive tour of its habitat in 2006.
The animal was called the 'Goddess of the Yangtze'.
Pollution, and the contraversial 3 Gorges Dam were the final factors contributing to its demise.
This is the first recorded extinction of a cetacean species.
Many other animals are on the brink of extinction as well.
I hope this quiz enlightens, and informs, as well as entertains.
Please rate it if you like it.

I liked your quiz, but a fish is most definitely an animal.
