Gangetic dolphin/South Asian river dolphin.

*Abstract: *A site-specific threat assessment of the gangetic dolphin was
carried out in river

Kulsi. Threats were identified by extensive literature survey and direct
observation in

field. Twelve threats were identified after the study. The study was a
fervent attempt

to identify the threats and prepare a detailed list of these threats faced
by the cetacean

in Kulsi. The study reiterates that Kulsi is one of the last refuges of the

gangetic dolphin and that the threats faced by the animal in this river are
to yet to

be acknowledged by the concerned authorities in order to conserve this
species.



Suggestions and views on the paper are welcome!



Thanks,
Nawaz
