Wildlife experts in south China are trying to rescue an endangered white dolphin that is in worsening health after mistakenly swimming into a freshwater river a week ago. The Chinese white dolphin, about 30 years old, equivalent to 70 human years, swam into the Baisha River, a tributary of the Pearl River in Jiangmen, Guangdong Province Feb.1, 2017. The animal is in a stretch about 100 km from the river's estuary. "As it is too old and has been stranded for many days, the skin of the dolphin is festering and its health is deteriorating ... its moving area is shrinking," said Feng Kangkang, a worker with Jiangmen Chinese White Dolphin Nature Reserve, on Thursday. The team is watching the dolphin around-the-clock through devices and recording its health condition, according to the Guangdong provincial ocean and fishery department. Dubbed the "giant pandas of the sea," Chinese white dolphins are mainly scattered in a few coastal areas and exist only in small numbers, with about 2,000 detected at the mouth of the Pearl River.
