Chinese dolphins

Bad news and not particularly bad news for dolphins in China. Firstly it appears the poor old Baiji Yangtze Dolphin has finally had enough. Apparently, the Yangtze isn't quite as badly polluted as Westerners probably assume it is, but if you're a mostly-blind dolphin relying on sonar to work out where you are, being on the riverine equivalent of the M25 at rush hour isn't good for your long term survival.

On the other hand, the Chinese have developed a new treatment for dolphins that have had an encounter with plastic - get a tall Mongolian to shove his arm down their throat.
