In 2007, EDGE helped fund a conservation project in China for the Yangtze river dolphin, also known locally as the baiji.
The purpose was to find out whether there were any remaining populations of baiji in the Yangtze river basin after a dramatic decline in the species' numbers mainly due to overfishing and large-scale development along the river.
Click on the dolphin to find out more about the project and its outcome.
Could equip a local school teacher with a conservation educational package on EDGE species
Could keep a camera trap running for a week - the best way to survey poorly known EDGE species
Could enable us to provide vital fieldwork training to a future conservation leader to help rescue an EDGE species from extinction
