Oil spillage in Bangladesh threatens up to 6,000 Irrawaddy dolphins

The BBC report that oil spilt from a crashed tanker is threatening a rare dolphin sanctuary.

The government declared areas in the southern Sunderbans to be a dolphin sanctuary in 2011, after research suggested some 6,000 Irrawaddy dolphins lived in the area. The spillage now threatens those same rare Irrawaddy dolphins.

NDTV report on the 14 December 2014 that sadly the first dead dolphin has been spotted following the spillage.
