A rare species of dolphin unique to China has just been declared extinct. Looks like humanity has done it again....
I'll second that recommendation. It's quite funny, given the subject manner. But then, it was written by Douglas Adams, so how could it not be?If you get the chance, get your hands on a copy of "Last Chance to See" by Douglas Adams (of "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" fame). It is his account of a trip around the world to see endangered species, including the dolphin. In addition to being somewhat informative it is, of course, incredibly funny.
