The state of Punjab is set to start the Census of one of the world’s most threatened cetaceans, Indus River dolphin.
In the IUCN red list, Indus River dolphin is classified as endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
Where they are found?
Until recently, dolphins were believed to be endemic to Pakistan. However, a remnant but viable population of Indus dolphins was discovered in Harike wildlife sanctuary of Punjab as well as in lower Beas River in 2007. Since its discovery, Punjab’s Department of Forests and Wildlife Preservation is conducting research in association with the WWF-India on the habitat use, current distribution and population of dolphins.
State aquatic animal
In 2019, Indus River dolphin was declared as the State aquatic animal of Punjab.
