An Indus River Dolphin, one of the world’s rarest and most endangered mammals, is pictured silhouetted in the afternoon light as it breaches the waters of Sukkur Barrage, Sindh.

The blind river dolphins remain highly vulnerable due to entanglements in fishing gear, stranding in canals branching off of the Indus, exposure to pollution, and in some cases, persecution by fishermen.

With fewer than 2,000 of these blind river dolphins left, WWF Pakistan along with partners and government departments work to protect this unique population through initiatives such as rescuing stranded dolphins, community awareness campaigns, and reducing water pollution.
