Thank Rescuers for Saving Endangered Dolphin Trapped in Shallow Water

Dolphin SSIS Official

Target: Ahmer Bilal Soofi, President of World Wildlife Fund Pakistan

Goal: Thank rescuers for saving a critically endangered Indus river dolphin who was trapped in shallow water.

Local fishermen saw a small Indus river dolphin swim into a tributary where she became stuck in the shallow waters. The water was getting shallower with each passing day and the fishermen kept an eye on the lone dolphin, hoping she would find her way back to the deeper river. Unfortunately she did not, and she was then trapped under the brutally hot sun.

Sadly, only about 1,200 Indus river dolphins are believed to be left on this planet. The small population of this species makes it even more important to help them whenever possible.

Thankfully, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Pakistan was called in. Rescuers jumped into action upon arriving at the scene. The dolphin was carefully captured and transported up the river where she was released. WWF Pakistan has saved 119 Indus river dolphins from situations similar to this. Sign this petition and thank WWF Pakistan for all its hard work in saving the animals and the planet.


Dear Mr. Soofi,

Recently, a trapped Indus river dolphin was saved by your organization from a shallow tributary. As you know, Indus river dolphins are endangered, which makes this rescue even more crucial.

As fishermen saw the water getting shallower and shallower on the poor dolphin, they knew something had to be done. They contacted your organization and your team jumped into action without hesitation. She was carefully captured and transported up the river for a safe release.

Thank you so much for your dedication to sustaining this planet and its inhabitants. It is heartwarming and inspiring to see what organizations like yours are willing to do to save an individual life.
