I don't. Who would like to kill such a wonderful creature?
The Pink Freshwater Dolphin?
Or another endangered species like the manatee?
Not many people, I suppose.
What can we do to prevent such animals from getting killed by an oil accident like this one?
The Venezuelan government wants to find more oil. It has a problem: a lot of that oil is in the Orinoco Basin. PDVSA, the state oil company, wants to install a set of oil rigs in the Orinoco to start in 2008 production and there is no real research on the consequences. There is no environmental study guaranteeing the ecosystem is not going to be affected. We know how accidents in the oil industry in Venezuela have multiplied since2003 and we are afraid a lot can happen if no control takes place.
What can we do?
