The pink Amazon river dolphin (Inia geoffrensis) is found only in the Amazon and Orinoco Rivers and tributaries. This beautiful and intriguing mammal can become a regional folklore character in the not so distant future. This, according to Nívia do Carmo; a Brazilian researcher and fellow at the National Institute for Amazonian Research ( INPA ). If the killing of pink Amazon River Dolphins by fishermen at the riverine communities continues at its current rate, the dolphin may become extinct within ten years.
