In­dus River

Asian Geographic - - FEATURE | OUR BATTLE FOR SUSTAINABI­LITY -

The In­dus River is home to 25 am­phib­ian species (of which 22 are found nowhere else in the world) and 147 species of fish. Hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple bathe, clean, fish and take part in re­li­gious cer­e­monies daily in the In­dus River. The aquatic life in the In­dus has been se­verely de­pleted by pol­lu­tion. Only 1,000 In­dus River dol­phins (Planista ganget­ica mi­nor) are left.
