Our team is excited to share that we have started our low-water season population survey of the endangered Ganges river dolphin in the Karnali-Geruwa-Katarniya international waterways of Nepal and India. We received a 2013 CLP Future Conservationist Award for this project, entitled “Ecology and Conservation of Ganges river dolphin Platanista gangetica in the Karnali Nepal.” The survey started on December 17, 2013 and is taking place upstream of the Girijapuri barrage in India in collaboration with Bardiya National Park of Nepal and WWF India.
