Conservationists are determined to avoid the extinction of the Yangtze finless porpoise. That’s why today is a banner day for the Yangtze finless porpoise. Early this morning, on March 27, as the sun rose in China, four of the animals completed a 250-mile drive to a new home that could spell salvation for the species—or at least give it some hope.
China’s Yangtze finless porpoise has a new chance of survival thanks to a team of conservationists and a couple of trucks.
