Cambodia has conducted a research project to protect its population of river dolphins. The initiative, which was coordinated in conjunction with the WWF, collected tissue samples from three dolphins in the Mekong River. These samples will provide information about the animals’ welfare, off ering clues to the best methods of conserving the population in the future, the research team said. Irrawaddy-Mekong dolphins are ranked as critically endangered, with fewer than 100 adult individuals
