In 2009, nearly 6,000 Irrawaddy dolphins, which are  related to orcas or killer whales, were found living in freshwater  regions of Bangladesh’s Sundarbans mangrove forest and the adjacent  waters of the Bay of Bengal, the New York-based Wildlife Conservation  Society said.


Prior to this study –  which the Wildlife Conservation Society news release said used rigorous  scientific techniques – the largest known populations of Irrawaddy  dolphins numbered in the low hundreds or less.


The news release did not say when the study was conducted but Bangladeshi researchers in the team said it was launched in 2004.
