Día Internacional del Delfín Franciscana dia da toninha pontoporia blainvillei la plata delfin

Dia da Toninha – Today is the International Day of the La Plata Dolphin – Franciscana – Toninha.
The Franciscana dolphin (Pontoporia blainvillei) – Toninha (Brazil) and the Lahille's bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops gephyreus) are the most endangered dolphin species in South America.
Franciscana dolphins live in the coastal waters from Brazil to Uruguay to Argentina and YAQU PACHA has been working on the protection of this dolphin species since 1996 to save it from extinction.
Together with other partners, the Consorcio Franciscana was also founded a few years ago in order to work more effectively together with other partners to protect this endangered species .
Together with biologists and scientists from Brazil and Uruguay, for example, we were also able to successfully carry out the first flight counts to determine the population of the La Plata dolphin – Delfín Franciscana (Pontoporia blainvillei) in Uruguay in 2023.
The 1st of October – Dia da Toninha – is the day to draw attention to the situation of these animals together and YAQU PACHA will continue to work tirelessly for the protection and conservation of this endangered dolphin species.
