Stop Killing Endangered Ganges River Dolphins With Pollution and Fishing Nets

Target: Mr. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India

Goal: Advocate for the conservation of the Ganges river dolphin and its habitat to ensure its long-term survival.

The Ganges river dolphin, an iconic and endangered species, is facing numerous threats to its existence. These dolphins are native to the rivers of India, particularly the Ganges and its tributaries, but their population has drastically declined due to habitat degradation, pollution, accidental entanglement in fishing gear, and unsustainable fishing practices.

The Ganges river dolphin holds immense ecological significance as an indicator species for the health of river ecosystems. Its conservation is crucial for the overall well-being of the Ganges riverine system, which is not only a lifeline for millions of people but also supports a rich diversity of flora and fauna.

To ensure the survival of the Ganges river dolphin, it is imperative to advocate for its conservation. This involves preserving and restoring its natural habitat, mitigating pollution from industrial and agricultural sources, promoting sustainable fishing practices, and implementing strict regulations to protect the species from accidental harm.

The conservation of the Ganges river dolphin is not only vital for India but also for global biodiversity. As a nation known for its cultural and natural heritage, India has a responsibility to protect its unique wildlife species. By championing the conservation of the Ganges River Dolphin, we can contribute to the preservation of India’s rich riverine ecosystems and secure a sustainable future for both wildlife and communities dependent on these rivers.

The conservation of the Ganges river dolphin will not only safeguard India’s natural heritage but also enhance its international standing as a leader in wildlife conservation. It is our shared responsibility to protect and conserve this charismatic species for the benefit of present and future generations. Sign below and demand Mr. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, allocate resources for research and conservation efforts, collaborate with relevant stakeholders, strengthen regulations, and raise public awareness to ensure the long-term survival of this remarkable species.
