Goodbye to the baiji, the Yangtze River dolphin (Natural History Museum)

Join Zoological Society of London (ZSL) scientist Dr Sam Turvey in this video to uncover the tragic example of the baiji, the Yangtze River dolphin. This extraordinary species was the only member of an entire mammal family. In an effort to stop the loss of other such unique animals, ZSL has established the EDGE (Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered) programme, which raises awareness of one-of-a-kind species on the verge of extinction and works towards protecting their future.
