First-of-its kind turtle rehab centre comes up in Bihar - 06 Jan 20

Highlights& Details:
  • A first-of-its-kind rehabilitation centre for freshwater turtles will be inaugurated in Bihar’s Bhagalpur forest division in January 2020. 
  • The rehab centre, spread over half a hectare, will be able to shelter 500 turtles at a time. 
  • The need to build such a centre was felt after several turtles were found severely wounded and sick when rescued from smuggles by rescue teams.
  • This centre will play a significant role in treating these animals and their proper upkeep before being returned to their natural habitat.
  • In Bhagalpur, the flow of water in the Ganga is ample. 
  • Also, there are many sandbanks in the middle of the river, which are ideal breeding ground for turtles.
  • According to environmentalists, the turtles play a significant role in the river by scavenging dead organic materials and diseased fish, controlling fish population as predators and controlling aquatic plants and weeds. 
  • They are also described as indicators of healthy aquatic ecosystems.
  • The turtles have come under serious threat primarily for two reasons - food and the flourishing pet trade.
  • According to a recent study conducted by Traffic India, around 11,000 turtles are being smuggled in India every year. 
  • The hard-shell turtles are poached for pet trade. 
  • They are in high demand in China, Japan and South East Asia.
