New Bolivian law protects river dolphins

Bolivian President Evo Morales has enacted a law to protect Amazon river dolphins. This new law makes it not only illegal to fish this freshwater dolphin, but it also encourages programs to protect their habitats which have been damaged by erosion, pollution and woodcutting in the river basins. Habitat destruction threatens all inhabitants of Amazon rivers, including cichlids. For more infomation on this story, read the Washington Post story
