Cyril and the team set out on a mission to help conserve one of South America's last remaining river giants, the rare and dangerous short tailed river stingray, feared by locals for its razor sharp charm laced with agonizing venom.

But despite their massive size, they face many challenges caused by human activity. This is from Wild Fish.
