Glimpse. Burrunan dolphin, Port Phillip Bay.
The Burrunan dolphin was only recently discovered and at a time when species are disappearing at an alarming rate. While new species are usually plumbed from the depths of the ocean or found in one of the planet's dwindling wilderness areas, this one comes from an industrialised estuary that is at the heart of a major city that also happens to be the busiest container port in the southern hemisphere.
