The pink river dolphin  (Inia geoffrensis), also known as boto, is being massacred in the Amazon to be used as bait. This animal is a character in many regional folktales and is one of the most emblematic icons of the Amazon. It is a keystone species totally adapted to its environment and is fundamental for the ecological balance of the Amazon river basin and its rivers. Furthermore, the pink river dolphin is a species with indescribable charisma. Botos are worth more ALIVE!!!"
