Stranded Indus dolphin rescued from Warah canal


A stranded blind Indus dolphin, locally known as Bhulan, was rescued from Larkana’s Warah Canal and released upstream of the Sukkur Barrage near Seven Sisters.

The Sindh Wildlife Department in a Twitter statement said this was the 35th successful rescue operation during the last two years.

The animal got stranded in the canal and could not go back into the main River Indus due to the one-way water flow, it added. The rescued dolphin was taken to the releasing point by road.—INP
