Dolphin Discovery

It's really great when this happens:
A huge population of rare dolphins threatened by climate change and fishing nets has been discovered in South Asia.

Researchers with the Wildlife Conservation Society estimate that nearly 6,000 Irrawaddy dolphins, marine mammals that are related to orcas or killer whales, were found living in freshwater regions of Bangladesh's Sundarbans mangrove forest and adjacent waters of the Bay of Bengal.
But maybe they should be renamed?

Maybe we should call them Irrawaddy salmon.

Funny. Or "panda bears."
