Fight against the extermination of the Amazon Pink River Dolphin

Target: IBAMA, Ministery of Tourism, Public Ministery, Governors and Mayors, Brazilian Congress, Brazil’s Presidency
Sponsored by: Norah Andre – Cadeia para quem Maltrata os Animais

I intentionally used the word “extermination”, instead of extinction.These gentle creatures are being killed and exported to other counties due to the complete lack of a serious ambiental policy in Brazil.Besides being affected in their numbers due to extinction of forest areas and the illegal fishing of the species, brazilian authorities simply do not ssem to care.Ignorance made it a belief that they have “magical powers”, and that eating their flesh leads to an increased sexual performance. This is one of the main reasons for their decreasing numbers in Amazon. They are hunted and killed to supply this stupid and equivocated market of ignorant consumers.With no real serious concern of the responsible legal agencies such as Ibama.Another reason for their near extinction is that they are being used as baits for fishing. Hunters are being hired to kill them to that effect, so that their flesh is used in Colombia for the fishing of the “piracatinga” .Many foreign TVs have come to document this tragedy. Nevertheless, we, brazilians, can’t see any real action being taken by local authorities to put an end on this massacre.Instead of allowing their reckless and barbaric killings, we wish the authorities to promote a campaign of preservation and local ecological tourism.Animal abusers must be put in jail.
