  • Bufeo Rosado: The mysterious warrior of the Amazon

    Amazon river dolphin / Amazonasdelfin / Inia geoffrensis
    Conservation status: CR - Critically Endangered

    Locally known as boto, bufeo or pink river dolphin, it is the largest of the river dolphins. In Colombia, they live in the Amazon and Orinoco rivers basins. They are less shy and curious than their sea cousins and have a remarkable lack of fear of foreign objects. The texture of the body is tough and strong but flexible, and its colour varies with age, ranging from dark to light grey, turning solid or mottled pink in adulthood.

    In the worldview of the indigenous peoples of the Amazonian trapezoid, in a world dominated by water, the pink dolphin reigns: an elusive, enigmatic, intelligent and coveted creature.

    According to the legends of the Cocama ethnic group, the Yakurama, as they call him, was a talented young indigenous warrior who, envied by a god, was turned into a dolphin. He returns at times of festivals and dances, dressed in white and wearing a hat, in search of women who will fall in love with him.

    Dolphins are important indicators of the health of the rivers they live in, which are also the lifeblood of huge economies and hundreds of millions of people. However, factors such as pollution, dams, shipping and bycatch have taken their toll on this iconic species.
