Why didn't the extinct dolphin make more waves?

I'm sorry, I don't know the answer to this riddle.

I first heard about the Yangtze dolphin extinction when it was mentioned in passing on ECOLOG (Ecological Society of America's listserv) yesterday. Lots of people at scienceblogs.com are blogging about the unfortunate news.

Check out the short video on this website about the Baiji - made by my good friends Chris and Gen Johnson. http://www.earthocean.tv/

Thanks for the website, Karlina! That's a great video. Based on their photography it looks like most creatures would have to be tough as nails to live in or around the Yangtze today.
