Finless Porpoise Population Rises in Yangtze

A scientific expedition sent by the Ministry of Agriculture is currently surveying the number of finless porpoises along sections of the river. Scientists have sighted highly endangered finless porpoises for more than 70 times in six days in the Yangtze, China's longest river.
