Endangered finless porpoise found dead in E China lake

An endangered finless porpoise was found dead at Poyang Lake, in east China’s Jiangxi Province at the weekend.

This is the third such dead mammal found in waters of Duchang city in China’s largest freshwater lake.

The species is the world’s only freshwater porpoise, and it’s discovered nowhere but China.

Less than 1,000 remain in China’s Yangtze River region, and the government is trying to increase its population by breeding in reserves.
