Dolphins in India are heading towards extinction

India’s only sanctuary for national aquatic animal in Bihar...

...found that Dolphins have decline to 154 in 2017 from 207 in 2015

Vikramshila Gangetic Dolphin Sanctuary (VGDS) had been warned...

...of the declining dolphin trend since the last two years

But nothing was being done to make the situation better according to a report by Asian Age on October 16, 2017

Noise pollution created by big ships & increase in dredging is seen as the reason for the downfall

Dredging has increased because the Indian Government...`

...wants to build ships in Bihar for better sea trade with Nepal

Decrease in water level & minimal flow of Ganga also isn’t seen as an ideal ecosystem for dolphins

Fishing in the area has also reduced the availability of food for dolphins

Will dolphins survive India’s trade ambitions?
