No safe Havens for river dolphins – new study launched

5 April 2023

Are protected areas that host river dolphins actually protecting these species? Unfortunately not.
On 23rd of March 2023,  during the UN Water Conference, WWF launched a global analysis, showing there is much room for improvement. With a quick assessment (‘CA|RDS Lite’), one-third of all river dolphin PA’s was scanned, scoring on average a 52% on their management effectiveness. Not enough to safeguard the future of these keystone and iconic species. A clear call to action.
