Dear Mr. Rossiter,

I am a contract researcher working for /National Geographic/ Art 
Department on a graphic conveying the four river dolphin species in the 
context of their genetic relationship. This concept originated from the 
research work of Dr. Healy Hamilton, Director of the Center for 
Biodiversity Research with the California Academy of Sciences. 


I have been asked to obtain current population numbers for these dolphin 
groups and I am hoping that you might be able to help me. The four 
dolphin (genetically related) species we are graphing are: Amazon River 
dolphins, La Plata River dolphins, Indus and Ganges River dolphins, and 
the Baiji dolphins.


My goal is to have population numbers by the end of next week (19 Dec) 
since many people will be out of the office during the holidays and this 
graphic deadline is mid-January. 

Thank you, in advance, for your time and consideration. Please refer me 
to another consultant if you feel they could better assist with this 


With best regards,
