River Dolphins & One Mom’s Mission to Save Them

Suzanne Smith Post

An interview with Suzanne Smith

Have you ever seen a freshwater dolphin? The Amazon River dolphin not only lives in freshwater, but it is also pink and grey. They are unique and friendly creatures, but they’re endangered. Approximately 1,500 river dolphins are killed a year for catfish bait. In today’s episode Suzanne Smith, a mom and conservationist, talks about these unique creatures and her mission to save them.

Suzanne  Smith has worked with marine mammals for over 30 years. She is originally  from Boston, and spent her childhood on her dad’s boat gaining an  appreciation and a deep respect for all marine life.

In  2014, Suzanne Smith founded the Amazon River Dolphin Conservation  Foundation (ARDCF). The foundation was established after exploring the  Rio Negro region of Brazil and realizing there was a need for river  dolphin conservation projects and education.

Currently,  she serves as the Executive Director of the Amazon River Dolphin  Conservation Foundation (ARDCF).  She has a  passion for marine mammals and is a strong advocate for environmental  conservation. She is  dedicated to increasing awareness of the plight of river dolphins and  how to conserve this species.
