From Gharials to Dolphins, Yamuna River Lifeline for Many Rare Species « India's Endangered

From Gharials to Dolphins, Yamuna River Lifeline for Many Rare Species « India's Endangered | Yamuna | Scoop.it

With everything from industrial effluents to bodies dumped in these rivers; apart from canals, dams, hydro power projects, drinking water usage drastically altering river beds, it is surely a surprise to find that these marine systems are still teeming with biodiversity. But a wildlife research led by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in collaboration with the Thames River Trust, UK has documented rare species including the Gharial and endangered turtle residing in the Yamuna.
