In India, a rare Ganges dolphin was beaten to death

It happened in Uttar Pradesh, India, in the Pratapgarh district: a rare Ganges dolphin (a species in danger of extinction, which now has a few hundred specimens) was beaten to death by three young men. The young perpetrators of this crime were arrested, as reported by India Today, which released the news, last December 31st.

Thanks to the video they posted themselves, in fact, the police were able to identify them. A group of young people beat him up to kill him, shooting the scene and then posting it on the social media. The poor animal, even when lifeless, continues to be beaten with violence, under the filming of a cell phone then used to post everything on the social networks.

Dolphin belonged to a rare species, which the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUNC) has included in the Red List where those threatened with extinction are listed. WARNING! BELOW THE VIDEO, WHICH CONTAINS STRONG IMAGES

How to save polar bears?

With the reduction of ice, polar bears will have to fast surviving with only the accumulated fat.

They would die of hunger, given the extreme difficulty in finding food. This could lead them to the brink of extinction, leaving them only in the northernmost area of ​​the Arctic. So Polar bears at risk: the great bear of the Antarica could become extinct by 2100.

The main author of the study is Peter Molnar and analyzed 80% of the total polar bear population. These data have been compared with those deriving from possible future projections on ice by 2100, if we keep the same CO2 production, this will be the result.

These are the conclusions of a study published in Nature Climate Change. This study highlights that if we didn't stop climate change, polar bears could run out of food and die. Critics who don't believe in climate change claim that fear of polar bear extinction is exaggerated as they have been able to survive despite high temperatures and food shortages.

Obviously, scientists don't accept this argument. Their answer is that in all likelihood, bears had access to alternative sources of food in previous hot periods, which no longer occurs. The reduction of ice will also lead to a drastic drop in the population.

The time it takes for bears to find a mate will lengthen, which will cause these animals to move despite fasting, burning energy unnecessarily. The fate of polar bears has long been predicted and used as a warning to remember what the effects that human-caused climate change could bring.When fasting bears are used to not moving or doing it as little as possible in order to save energy.
