गंगा और उसकी सहायक नदियों में पायी जानेवाली गांगेय डालफिन (Gangetic Dolphin) अररिया जिले की नदियों में भी पायी जाती है। आम बोलचाल की भाषा में ' सोंस' के नाम से प्रसिद्ध इस प्यारे जीव का अस्तित्व आज संकट मे है। विशेषज्ञ बताते है कि अभी मात्र लगभग 2000 गांगेय डालफिन ही बची है, जबकि वर्ल्ड वाइड फंड फार नेचर (WWF) के आंकडो से पता चलता है कि 1980 के दशक में केवल गंगा के मुहाने पर ही 3500 डालफिन थी। अन्य दूसरे जीवो की तरह इसके भी संरक्षण की आवश्यकता हैं।
