Endangered animal of the month
The Yangtze Finless porpoise also known as Jiangtun is a freshwater cetacean that lives in the Yangtze river in China.  There is currently an estimated 1000 left and population declines can be attributed to illegal fishing, pollution, underwater noise pollution, vessel traffic and dam construction.  There is a high chance (86..06%) that this species becomes extinct in the next 100 years.

The finless porpoise can grow up to 2.27m and weigh up to 158.3lbs but most tend to be smaller than this. It has 15-22 pairs of teeth on the upper and lower jaw. It tends to be shy and will not surface when there is human activity around. It is commonly reported to travel in groups of 3-6.

The first Yangtze finless porpoise was born in captivity on July 5th, 2005, in Baji Dolphinarium in Wuhan

Climate change includes both global warming driven by human-induced emissions of greenhouse gases and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns. Though there have been previous periods of climatic change, since the mid-20th century humans have had an unprecedented impact on Earth's climate system and caused change on a global scale.

The largest driver of warming is the emission of gases that create a greenhouse effect, of which more than 90% are carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane. Fossil fuel burning (coal, oil, and natural gas) for energy consumption is the main source of these emissions, with additional contributions from agriculture, deforestation, and the chemical reactions in certain manufacturing processes. The human cause of climate change is not disputed by any scientific body of national or international standing. Temperature rise is amplified by climate feedbacks, such as loss of sunlight-reflecting snow and ice cover, increased water vapour (a greenhouse gas itself), and changes to land and ocean carbon sinks.

What percentage of global warming is taking place in our oceans? Ninety percent of global warming is occurring in the ocean, with the last decade and the year 2020 being the hottest!
