Dolphins deployed to save rare porpoises

Mexico's government says it plans to use dolphins trained by the US Navy to try to save the world's most endangered marine species, the vaquita porpoise.

Environment Minister Rafael Pacchiano said that the dolphins would be deployed to locate and herd vaquitas into a marine refuge.

Mexico also permanently banned fishing nets blamed for the vaquitas' decline.

Scientists estimate that fewer than 40 of the mammals are still alive in their habitat, in the Gulf of California.

Although I am sorry for the porpoises (who, being only 30 individuals, are probably already doomed due to lack of variety in their genetic pool) is really the US navy still using dolphins? 

I didn't know that. 

It's actually a brilliant idea using them to rescue divers, if they only stick to that. 

And they don't use them to find naval mines.
