Sad news for animal lovers...

No, this dolphin in the Moray Firth isn't missing, he was one of a spectacular group of dolphins we saw on our recent trip to Scotland.

Why a picture of a Scottish dolphin instead of a picture from The Netherlands? Sorry to deviate from the CDPB norm, but today a study was released that the rare Yangtze River dolphins in China are probably extinct.

It's a very sad day indeed when we lose an entire species of these incredible, intelligent creatures.

I like your photo and you reminder about missing dolphins and those in China are extinct. Such a shame. This global warming will cause more things to go extinct than dolphins. Maybe even us.

It truly is a shame.

That is sad. One day we will realise how irresponsible we have been in caring for this blessed gift that we have been given called earth.

Sadly, when that day finally rolls around I am convinced it will be far too late to do anything to reverse the damage.

Very sad. we need them -and us- to get with the program before it is too late to stop some of these things from happening.
