First sighting of Yangtze finless porpoise in Hanjiang River in 30 years

A resident in central China's Hubei Province captured the moments of the endangered Yangtze finless porpoises in the Qianjiang section of the Hanjiang River on June 21.

The Hanjiang River is a major tributary of the Yangtze River.

The Yangtze finless porpoise, also known as the "giant panda in water" due to its rarity, is a first-class protected animal in China.
