So is this one bigger and better?
We are absolutely sick to our stomach!
Last week in the resort town of Santa Teresita, Argentina, beachgoers picked up a Franciscana dolphin from the ocean and passed it around for selfies.
The foot-long animal — which cannot survive long out of water — was eventually killed due to overheating and dehydration.
Video footage shows the dolphin dying on the ground, laying motionless.
The species — also known as La Plata dolphins — can only be found in Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil, and can only inhabit saltwater.
They are categorized as "vulnerable" on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species, and has a population of under 30,000.
Once video of the horrific incident began circulating, the Argentine Wildlife Foundation (AWF) quickly condemned the swimmers.
"This incident should serve to remind people about the need to return these dolphins to the sea if one is found outside of the water… It's fundamental that people help rescue these animals because every Franciscan has value."
Not surprisingly, people took to Twitter to vent their outrage
We think they're worth saving!
One of the first species to EVER be protected by the Endangered Species Act is the Devils Hole pupfish.
However these days there are less than a frickin' hundred of the rare species left in the entire world!!!
And while many do not believe there is a reason for the U.S. to keep spending money to protect this fish - at least one journalist named Jason Bittel believes otherwise!
Here's what he recently wrote

The longtime rockstar is trying to convert a barn on his $8+ million Buckinghamshire estate. He wants to turn the 17th century structure into a two bedroom home.

Everyone knows rhinoceros, or "nature's unicorns," are beautiful, majestic creatures worthy of life on this planet.
Everyone except poachers, at least.
Because of poaching, it's predicted that rhinos will be extinct by 2020. That's only 6 years away.
White and black rhinos are being slaughtered at an alarming rate, with only

Meet the Axolotl.
It’s like a water-breathing, thin skinned salamander that wears a crazy headdress.
Oh and it’s permanently smiling. Super cute, unique, gross and weird all at the same time.
This crazy lizard fish thing calls Lake Xochimilco near Mexico City its home.
In 1998, the Mexican Academy of Sciences found 6,000 axolotls per square kilometer. In 2008, they only found 100.
Now? They haven’t found a single one. They looked for three months.
They’re about to do another three-month survey to try and find if any of these guys are alive in the wild.
We really hope they find some because they’re named after the Xolotl, the Aztec god of death and fire and that’s just so super awesome.
Check out some axolotls doing their thang, aquarium style.
