According to the latest reports, the government in India is planning to build the country’s first community reserve to protect Ganga River Dolphins in the state of West Bengal.
It will be the first measure of this scale to protect the endangered species in the country. Experts have said that the species on the verge of extinction in the country and steps are required to be taken in order to protect them. The decision to create a reserve especially for the protection of dolphins was taken at a meeting of the State Wildlife Board.
Azam Zaidi, Chief Wildlife Warden, and Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife), said, “A committee is being formed to examine in what way the community reserve would be set up in the Hooghly River between Malda and Sundarbans. We’ll take all stakeholders together in this initiative. It is expected that it would be ready within a year’s time.”
Zaidi also said that the Indian Wildlife Protection Act includes provisions to create such reserves for the protection of animal and plant species. Data showed that dolphin population has been declining in the country and there are less than 2,000 dolphins left in the river Ganga and are facing extinction.
