The Amazon river dolphin doesn't get hunted by the locals, but it is still listed as Endangered by the IUCN due to pollution, overfishing, excessive boat traffic and habitat loss.
It is often found where small river flies into bigger ones. There they hunt fish. It is also particularly abundant in lowland rivers with extensive floodplains. During the annual rainy season, these rivers flood large areas of forests and marshes along their banks. The Amazon river dolphin specializes in hunting in these habitats, taking advantage of its unusually flexible neck and spinal cord to maneuver among the underwater tree trunks, and using its long snout to extract prey fish from hiding places in hollow logs and thickets of submerged vegetation.
