Meet the legendary pink river dolphins

By Alison Wood | 10th May 2022

Botos don’t look or live like other dolphins. Flamingo-pink all over with super-skinny snouts and chubby cheeks, they certainly stand out in a crowd.

By Sonja Eisfeld-Pierantonio | 7th March 2022

You’ve seen pictures of plastic litter accumulating on beaches or marine wildlife swimming through floating rubbish in some ocean far away and, like me, you’ve probably wondered if and how we could ever clean up this mess.
