Reserve created in Bengal to save river dolphins

Bengal in India will soon have the country’s first community reserve for the endangered Ganges River dolphin, which inhabits the major rivers of the sub-continent.

The reserve would be created over 500km of the Hooghly river, a stretch of the Ganges between Malda and the Sundarbans. It is hoped it will be designated with the next year.

Habitat loss, entanglement in fishing nets and pollution are three of the major threats to the dolphins, who are thought to number just a few thousand throughout their range.
