Dear colleagues,

I want to circulate a short article on the Gangetic dolphin published
recently in IndiaWilds newsletter.

Summary of the article:

The relationship between the spatial occupancy and seasonal change was
examined to prioritize specific habitats within kulsi for river dolphin
conservation. After reconnaissance surveys, five sample sites were
selected. Land based surveys were carried our primarily in Kulsi, in two
seasons, pre-monsoon and monsoon. In pre-monsoon, dolphins were recorded in
only one of the five sample sites, while in monsoon, dolphins were found in
four of the five sites. Study revealed that the spatial occupancy of
Gangetic dolphins in Kulsi is related to seasonal change.

Thanks,
Nawaz
